Introduction to Pivot: Appalachian's subscription funding database - Workshop 12/9 at noon

The Office of Research is excited to offer you a resource to find external research grants and funding opportunities—the Pivot (ProQuest) research funding opportunity database. The Pivot platform alerts you to relevant funding announcements as they are released, allows you to track and share funding opportunities, and supports the creation of saved searches using a variety of search options.

Pivot (ProQuest), is available through single sign-on (Shibboleth SSO) with your App State username and password.

We are offering the following assistance for new users:
A Pivot training session will be offered Friday, December 9, 12 to 1 p.m. Please register here.
This training will help new users:

  • Claim or create their researcher profile
  • Design and save a search query
  • Explore additional features of the database

If you prefer a self-guided tutorial, you can find step-by-step instructions in our Pivot Quick Start Guide.
