Find Funding Opportunities

Funding Opportunities

Pivot-RP's main feature is connecting you with available funding opportunities. These opportunities include the sponsor, funding category (keywords), amount, application requirements and deadlines, and where to find more information.

Pivot-RP enables you to mark opportunities in order to track them. You can mark highly relevant opportunities, ones that you are actively dealing with, as active. Tracking an opportunity enables you to receive updates when the opportunity changes and to get personal reminders about the opportunity's deadlines.

You can also share opportunities, browse opportunities shared with you, and create alerts to be notified when new opportunities that match certain criteria are added to Pivot-RP.
