Pivot is Live!

Our Grants Lifecycle Management (GLM) project team is pleased to confirm that the first module in this two-year strategic initiative is now live and available to our research community.

Pivot aggregates many thousands of funding opportunities in one user-friendly tool which facilitates identification of relevant funding opportunities, as well as awards, research collaborators, and conferences around the world.  It also offers ways to enhance the experience by tailoring your profile, saving searches, and receiving automated alerts about relevant funding sources.  Used by leading research universities around the world, Pivot currently offers information on over $115 bn of funding opportunities from domestic and international sources.

Here is how to get started:

  1. Navigate to
  2. Locate the “Use login from my institution” drop down list
  3. Select Tulane University
  4. Log in with your ID (without the “” part)
  5. Claim and update your existing personal Pivot profile as directed (most Tulane faculty should see their profile in the system, but you may otherwise create one in the rare instance where necessary)
