Online Tools

Although there is no single database that provides comprehensive information about all grant-providing organizations, the Princeton University community has access to several online tools.

  • Pivot provides a user-friendly, web-based system to aid faculty, staff, and students in matching research interests to potential external funding sources and in promoting collaborations with colleagues.
  • The Foundation Center compiles an extensive list of opportunities that may be searched by members of the Princeton community using the Foundation Directory Online from on-campus computers.
  • is a searchable, public database of researchers, their publications and other research assets at higher education institutions in New Jersey that can help Princeton faculty identify potential collaborations with nearby colleagues.
