COS Pivot

The ORSP subscribes to COS Pivot, an easy-to-use research funding opportunities database that identifies grant opportunities for research and other academic projects. COS Pivot is a tool that can help faculty bring together the right research opportunities, funding, and people, quickly and easily. It compiles pre-populated researcher profiles unique to Loyola (and other institutions) and matches them to current funding opportunities in the expansive COS database. Allowing faculty to search for a funding opportunity and instantly view matching faculty from inside or outside Loyola. Conversely, a search for a scholar will link to matching funding opportunities.

  • Provides access to the most comprehensive source of funding opportunities globally
  • Identifies researcher expertise from within or outside of Loyola
  • Enhances communication, monitoring, and tracking between individual faculty and the ORSP; and
  • Enables you to add internal deadlines to critical funding opportunities and send weekly updates on saved searches you organize in your own folders    

Grants.gov

Grants.gov is currently the single access point for over 900 grant programs offered by the 26 Federal grant-making agencies, allowing applicants to electronically find and apply for competitive grant opportunities through specific keyword, opportunity, or CFDA number searches. It provides opportunity number, title, issuing agency, opportunity status, and posted and close dates as well as a link to the funding opportunity announcement.
