Research and Sponsored Programs


Pivot is a tool for faculty that provides access to a comprehensive database of funding opportunities. Faculty can create a personal profile and match funding opportunities with expertise. Alerts are generated within the system when new funding opportunities arise. 

Hofstra University provides access to PIVOT for all faculty who are interested in finding funding opportunities. To get a PIVOT account or to receive training, please contact the Office for Research and Sponsored Programs at (516) 463-6505 or email Associate Provost Sofia Kakoulidis. The office also regularly schedules PIVOT workshops as part of the Faculty, Research, Education, and Development Workshop series.
