Pivot Services

The Pivot (formerly Community of Science [COS]) search service provides the most comprehensive funding search engine for sources of support for academic research, service, and scholarly activities, and features a faculty expertise database that enables LUC faculty to more easily develop interdisciplinary research teams across campuses. Just click on the link above to get started in finding grant opportunities and to create your personal professional profile. Use the faculty profiles feature to search for collaborators across the Loyola campuses as well as nationally and internationally. Creating a profile will enable ORS to send funding opportunities in Pivot that match your interests to you directly from Pivot. Further, some funding agencies use Pivot profiles to locate experts to serve on grant review panels and advisory committees.

The Office of Undergraduate Research is part of the Center for Engaged Learning, Teaching, and Scholarship (CELTS). Undergraduate Research is a high-impact learning experience for students outside of the traditional classroom environment. It is our mission to enable Loyola University students to participate in research if they so choose.
