Funding Opportunities

The Office of Research Development has launched a grant funding opportunity website, that is internal to the UMaine research community and will be updated weekly with a curated list of grant solicitations.  Postings include funding opportunities that are relevant to UMaine’s Signature and Emerging Areas.   Additionally, the site contains instructions on how individuals can access PIVOT, UMaine’s subscription grant-seeking database, to customize searches based on individual research and scholarship interests. Requests for funding opportunities in specific topic areas to be posted and suggestions for website enhancements can be directed to Jason Charland.  Jason is also available to assist faculty with setting up a PIVOT profile, conducting customized searches for funding, and starting the proposal development process.

Funding Resources

Below you can find a link to funding opportunities curated by discipline and a search tool for Pivot, the online grants database. To use either you need a pivot login, which is available to all UMaine faculty, staff and students. If you haven’t already done so, you can create a Pivot login using your UMaine email address. If you need assistance please contact Jen Bonnet at the Fogler Library.
