Pivot-COS Funding (formerly Community of Science)

Pivot-COS offers a large database of available funding opportunities in the arts, commerce and industry,education, humanities, health, and science areas. ORSP provides Web access to this database to all University of Mississippi faculty, staff and students under a site-license agreement with COS. Web access requires connection via a computer in the University of Mississippi domain.

Pivot-COS Profile Database and Funding Opportunity ALERT System

Pivot-COS maintains a large database of first-person researcher profiles. The database is used by faculty at UM and at other subscribing Universities to locate collaborators, federal and private agencies seeking reviewers, and corporations seeking research expertise and consultants. UM faculty and staff may update their research interest profiles and request that new notices of funding opportunities be automatically e-mailed to you. Your Research Advocate or Program Development Specialist can use Pivot-COS to search for funding opportunities for you if you prefer.
