New COS Pivot Interface

February 3, 2012


VCU has several databases for searching for funding opportunities. One, COS, has established a new interface that brings together their Funding
Opportunities search function, Scholar Universe and Expertise files under one database called COS Pivot. One of the enhanced features is that Pivot allows users to search for a funding opportunity and instantly view matching faculty from inside or outside of VCU. Conversely, a search for a scholar will link to matching funding opportunities.

There are lots of FAQs and documentation on the COS Pivot Support pages  – including a link at the bottom to register for upcoming webinars.

The Office of the Vice President for Research will incorporate COS Pivot into its Find Funding training and individual consultations. If you have any questions, contact Jessica Venable at
