Funding Opportunity Searching (for Sciences, Social Sciences, and Humanities): How to Get Pivot to Work for You!
Pivot is an online database of grant opportunities available to UConn faculty (yes, you! Anyone with a NetID) through the support of the OVPR and UConn Libraries. This workshop is focused on tuning your searches in this “Google for Grants” to get results that help you meet your funding goals and setting Pivot loose to send you new results each week. Through examples drawn from faculty working in STEM, the Social Sciences, and the Humanities, we’ll explore how to get better search results by adapting your search strategy to the mission of funding agencies and by making use of Pivot’s advanced search features.
