- Pivot is a subscription-based source of funding opportunity information for most disciplines. Miami students, faculty, and staff can use Pivot free of charge while on campus (or connected to the Miami VPN). Although the creation of an account is not necessary, any researcher who does create an account can create and save search criteria. Optionally, the researcher can choose to receive a weekly e-mail digest of opps that meet the saved search criteria. In addition, when a researcher claims his or her profile — which matches the researcher up to his or her existing publications — Pivot will identify potential internal and external research collaborators.
- grants.gov allows researchers to search for Federal agency funding opportunities.
- H-Net is a source of funding information for humanities and social science scholars and researchers.
- Interdisciplinary research is currently being privileged at the NSF and other Federal agencies. Funded projects have brought together scientists, artists, engineers, humanists, educators, and social scientists in various combinations and permutations. Faculty who want to explore the possibilities of interdisciplinary research can view a list of projects funded by the NSF.
- The U.S. Government Printing Office (GPO) offers links to many Federal agency publications — including the Federal Register and Commerce Business Daily — that may include funding opportunity information.
- internal support for faculty research.
