Resources for identifying potential sources of support for research and scholarly activities led by Sacramento State faculty and staff.

Searchable Funding Databases

  • Pivot Sacramento State provides a subscription to Pivot to enable researchers to find funding opportunities. Pivot is a searchable database of grants, funding opportunities, scholarships, and calls for papers across all disciplines. You can create a profile, search the database and create email alerts. PIVOT also allows you to search over 3 million user profiles to find future potential collaborators. The first step is to claim and complete your profile. You can learn more about Pivot and getting started here.
  • GRANTSEARCH contains over 1,500 funding opportunities that support academic activities such as research, education, training, fellowships, program or curriculum development, and/or equipment acquisition. Most programs in GrantSearch are cyclical (funded every year) and the database excludes solicitations that are limited to a specific region, that make fewer than three awards annually, and for which higher education institutions are not eligible to apply or partner. For the login info to access GrantSearch, please contact ORIED.
