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 Loyola Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (LUROP) promotes undergraduate learning outside the classroom with the support of faculty mentors. LUROP’s mission is to engage undergraduate students in research, regardless of major or academic standing. LUROP houses all funded undergraduate research opportunities available at Loyola and serves students from all university schools and colleges.
