All faculty, staff, and students at UVA now have access to two new funding discovery tools, Pivot and GrantForward. These tools allow researchers to locate funding opportunities based on their individual research interests. Both Pivot and GrantForward allow researchers to create personalized searches and email alerts that target current and future funding opportunities.
