Funding Opportunities


Pivot is a comprehensive resource for global funding resources that allows faculty, staff, and graduate students to search for funding opportunities in their field and to receive email alerts when an opportunity becomes available. Faculty, staff, and students can create their own personal Pivot account or can login using their university credential by simply choosing University of North Carolina at Charlotte from the drop down list of institutions. The Center for Research Excellence offers Pivot workshops for faculty, staff, and students and can conduct individual, customized searches to help them find funding opportunities. Please reach out to Kailey Hess ( in the Center for Research Excellence for help in conducting a Pivot search.

See a Curated List of Funding Opportunities.

You may be prompted to log in to Pivot to access these results. If you do not have a Pivot account set up, you can use your UNC Charlotte NinerNet credentials as the shibboleth login when prompted.
