Custom Funding Alerts

Getting Started with Pivot

Pivot is a web-based tool that enables the UC San Diego community to find, track and share funding opportunities. Through an institutional subscription, users can create targeted searches based on custom criteria.

Features

  • Advanced searches (by sponsor, discipline, keyword, amount, career stage, citizenship, funding type)
  • Saved searches
  • Automatic email notifications of new matches
  • Individual opportunity tracking (deadline changes, etc)
  • Custom groups (allows units to request creation of public groups around shared research interests)
  • Publishing opportunities (calls for papers with deadlines)
  • Scholar profiles (collaborator identification and personal funding matches)

Creating your account

  • Visit the Pivot homepage to create an account
  • In the lower right quadrant of the page, click the gray "create account" link
  • Select the option to "Use institutional login credentials"
  • Using the institutional dropdown menu, select "University of California, San Diego" and click the blue "create my account" button to be redirected to Single Sign-On. Remember to use the @ucsd.edu form of your email, not an @eng.ucsd.edu or @health.ucsd.edu address!
  • Check your inbox for an account verification email
  • Log in to create and save searches. Optional: For personalized funding matches, faculty and researchers can claim and update individual scholar profiles
