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 "Research Guides" on the library's homepage:

On the next screen, scroll down and click on the "Grants" link and then on the "Funding Opportunities & Grants Research" link:
