We currently have two options for locating potential funding opportunities. The SPIN database has been an option for some time with recent improvements having been made in the last year. The second option is the Community of Scholars PIVOT database. This is a newer option that we are currently piloting. Both options include a searchable database of national and international government, foundation and private funding opportunities.
For help performing searches, fill out the request a search form.
Set up your own profile to save searches, share them with others, and have relevant opportunities emailed to you, or you can perform a one-time search.
The Community of Scholars PIVOT database will also let you create a profile, save and share searches or have results automatically emailed to you. You can also search other profiles to help identify a key element for a new collaboration.
Follow these steps to get started:
External grants are binding contracts between the sponsoring agency and Nazareth College, so Nazareth’s academic and financial branches must review all proposals and you must submit all external funding applications for academic-related projects through Nazareth’s Office of Sponsored Programs and Faculty Research. This process takes time, so it’s important that you let us know of your plans to submit an application so that all involved can schedule the time needed to give it the attention it deserves.
Summarize how the grant will impact Nazareth, information that is important for the vice president of academic affairs and the vice president of finance. This form must be signed by all relevant parties before the proposal can be submitted, so file this form well in advance of the proposal submission deadline.
