COS Pivot 

COS Pivot (formerly Community of Science) is a searchable database of funding opportunities. It is user-friendly and has features that allow you to search for sources of external funding or potential collaborators. They have a variety of online tutorials that are short, well explained, and accessible all the time. You can also download our quick start guide. You will need to register using your email address, but the PIVOT search is a separate account and should use a distinctly different password.
