Funding Alerts

Funding Alerts is a listing of upcoming externally funded opportunities across multiple research disciplines. Funding Alerts are searchable by category.


All NSU faculty and staff have electronic access to Pivot, a comprehensive resource to find funding opportunities for - and share expertise/establish collaborations with - faculty, staff researchers, and graduate students:

  • Funding: Pivot allows you to develop customized searches from thousands of new and updated opportunities from around the world.
  • Expertise: Pivot creates pre-populated Pivot profiles and allows you to update/augment your profile by uploading your CV or publication pages. Pivot also indexes and searches CV and publication pages to augment information on your profile.
  • Collaborations: Pivot allows you to search for, and be found by, potential collaborators within and outside NSU.

For training in Pivot, contact your Grant Officer or Submit Grant Training Request.
