Funding Discovery Tools

The VPR’s Research Development team currently subscribes to the GrantForward funding discovery platform.


GrantForward is available to all UVA faculty, staff and students. The database contains information on funding opportunities for all disciplines and project types, and include federal, private and international sponsors. 


Finding funding


Creating your profile


Using your ORCID to refine searches

Faculty can include their ORCID information on the Edit My Profie page so that the system can automatically extract research interest keywords from there to recommend grants and update their GrantForward profiles whenever there are newly added publications on their ORCID. You can find information on specifying a publication page like ORCID, in this Tutorial: How Can I Generate My Research Interests When Creating My Researcher Profile? (PDF|Video)



Note: As of 5/1/24, the university no longer subscribes to Pivot.
