A workshop on this topic offered every semester at the Library

This workshop targets faculty, researchers, and graduate students at Texas Tech University who are interested in identifying grant opportunities. Hands-on experience is offered using the database: COS Pivot.  Pivot assists in finding funding opportunities and in supporting collaboration in research development.  It combines the most comprehensive, editorially maintained database of funding opportunities worth an estimated $33 billion with a unique database of 3 million scholar profiles, drawing from Community of Scholars and Community of Science profiles.  Other campus resources are also examined.
