How do I search for grants?

Visit our research guide, Funding Opportunities & Grants Research, which provides online help for finding funding opportunities, including grants.

We have created a brief PowerPoint presentation on Pivot, a  database which allows searching for grants in a variety of ways, to get you started.  Once you register, Pivot  allows you to save your searches; each search can be run on a weekly basis, with information about new and updated opportunities emailed to you on Sunday evening.

To access the research guide, click on “Start your Research” on the library’s homepage:

Get started by clicking on the image of the PowerPoint presentation.  We’ve provided some basic advice on searching under the “Tips and Strategies for Funding Research” tab:
