​Shop Talks 

We host a number of informative and hands-on training sessions throughout each semester, ranging from general overviews to specific opportunities. Past topics have included the following:

Pivot™ Training Sessions

Additionally, we offer interactive Pivot™ database training sessions in two formats: face-to-face and live webinar. A database filled with national and international funding opportunities, Pivot™ is a powerful tool for creating customized searches to find the funding specific to your academic interests. These training sessions will teach you how to set up your account, how to use the advanced search features to generate the best results, and how to track opportunities and save searches.
