Pivot Funding Opportunities Database

Pivot, formerly the Community of Science (COS), provides a comprehensive database of funding opportunities and an expertise database to help you identify potential collaborators within MU and at institutions around the world. The website also allows users to set up automated funding alerts based on keywords and areas of interest. Pivot is a subscription service provided by the Office of Research for all MU researchers. The Office of Sponsored Programs Administration (OSPA) is happy to assist you in using this service.
