The Funding portion of Pivot allows you to conduct either a Quick Search or an Advanced Search. In the Quick search, you can either enter text into the quick search free text field, or you can click the "Search by Sponsor" option.
By Text – Searching for funding by text allows you to easily search across all fields in a Funding Opportunity providing you with broad search results. Boolean operators AND, OR, and NOT can be used within the text search box. Use quotations for exact phrase searching.
By Sponsor - Searching by sponsor allows you to search our entire list of sponsors using the blank space provided or to browse the sponsor list alphabetically by: All Sponsors, US Federal Sponsors, or Non-US Federal sponsors. To search for a specific sponsor and find all open opportunities from that sponsor, type the sponsor name in the blank space.
Note: Many Sponsor names are listed under the name of their larger controlling entity.
To browse the sponsor list alphabetically, click on your choice of sponsor subsets—All Sponsors, US Federal Sponsors, or Non-US Federal sponsors. Please note that if the sponsor name is hyperlinked, the sponsor currently has open opportunities. Clicking on the hyperlinked sponsor name will take you to all open opportunities available from that sponsor. If you see a sponsor name in gray, the sponsor does not currently have any open opportunities, but they are a sponsor that we monitor and for which we may have something available in the future.
The Advanced Search allows you to construct a targeted, field-specific search using search boxes, browsing windows, and pick lists. The rows of text boxes at the top of the page can assist you in creating a Boolean search using OR and AND. Note that the text boxes in a single row are connected by OR and multiple rows are automatically AND-ed together by default.
To Conduct an Advanced Search:
First log onto Pivot and select the Funding Tab. From there, click “Advanced Search.”
1. Choose a matching option. These options allow you to either narrow or broaden your search criteria depending on your selection.
