Grants Resource Center - GrantSearch

The Grants Resource Center (GRC) provides direct access to higher education funding information services through its funding database, GrantSearch. GrantSearch is designed so faculty members can easily access grants availability information according to academic discipline and funding agency. For assistance or more information, contact OSP at (260) 481-4101.


Pivot is the primary source of funding information at Purdue. Pivot gives you the ability to identify funding opportunities and connect with other researchers, both within the Purdue community and globally. It combines the most comprehensive, editorially maintained database of funding opportunities with a unique database of 3 million+ scholar profiles. Its proprietary algorithm complies pre-populated Purdue researcher profiles and matches them to current funding opportunities in the expansive COS database. This allows users to search for a funding opportunity and instantly view matching faculty both inside and outside of Purdue. Conversely, a search for a scholar will link to matching funding opportunities. Follow this link to create a profile. To set funding alerts and tracking options, log in to your existing account. For help with Pivot, view online tutorials on the Pivot website, or view the one-page Pivot Quick Reference Guide. If you have questions, please contact OSP at (260) 481-4101.
