Pivot CoS (Community of Science), also known as ProQuest’s RefWorks-COS, contains a frequently updated database of announcements for funding opportunities, including grants, fellowships, and awards from governmental agencies, private foundations, and international sources.
Pivot CoS provides a number of services for facilitating research advancement including a funding alert, a personalized electronic notification service of funding information, networking with potential collaborators, and a weekly email with a customized list of funding opportunities based on previously specified criteria provided by individual Pivot CoS members. To access these services Brown researchers should create a Pivot profile.
Off-campus access to CoS may is granted through the University Library via SSL VPN or EZProxy by logging in with your profile username and password. For help with additional database features, for other funding sources on campus or for any questions and concerns please contact a member of the Research and Outreach staff at Brown University Library via our LibGuide for Grant Finding.
