Pivot-RP Funding Database

Pivot-RP provides a comprehensive database of funding opportunities and an expertise database to help you identify potential collaborators within SIU and at institutions around the world. The website also allows users to set up automated funding alerts specifically tailored to your areas of interest.

Pivot is a subscription service provided by the Vice Chancellor for Research available to all SIU faculty, staff and students. We are happy to assist you in using this service.
