Pivot Funding Database
Pivot is a comprehensive international funding database to which the University of Toronto subscribes on behalf of faculty. The database provides you with a curated list of funding opportunities as based on your departmental appointments, research interests, publication and granting history, and other profile information.
Pivot is a multi-functional website that allows you to:
- receive weekly email notifications of new and updated funding opportunities, as based on profile information
- conduct and save advanced funding searches which can include Canadian and international funding opportunities
- share funding opportunities with colleagues
This helpful video explains how you can claim your Pivot profile. Please note that you will require access to your utoronto.ca email address in order to register for Pivot and claim your profile. If you do not know or can't access your utoronto.ca email address, please visit the Help Desk, First Floor, Robarts Library; or call 416-978-HELP (4357); or email firstname.lastname@example.org
