The Funding Sources area of the ORSP website provides links to many funding organizations.

   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.

COS Pivot

  • 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
  • Enables you to add internal deadlines to critical funding opportunities and send weekly updates on saved searches you organize in your own folders

For information and resources to assist with preparing an application please contact a member of the ORSP. If your appointment is in the natural sciences or business disciplines, please contact Julie Ryder. If you  teach in any other discipline, please contact Derek Bowden.
