Set Up Funding Alerts

These sites allow you to set up email alerts when funding opportunities matching your search terms are posted.

  • Pivot - The Pivot funding database provides the ability to search for funding and then save the search so that weekly emails are delivered to you that contain new funding opportunities that fit the search criteria.
  • provides an e-mail notification service for upcoming grants. You can select alerts to be sent to you by category of funding activity, by funding type, by eligible applicants or by agency. Alerts are sent as soon as an opportunity is posted to that fits your request.
  • National Science Foundation
    The National Science Foundation's email alerts service provides access to funding opportunities, publications, discoveries, job postings, and other topics.
  • National Institutes of Health (NIH) Guide to Grants and Contracts
    The NIH Guide to Grants and Contracts provides the latest information concerning policies and procedures governing the National Institutes of Health, the Table of Contents of the weekly NIH Guide (funding opportunities), and other information of interest to the biomedical/life sciences community. To subscribe to the NIH Guide LISTSERV, send an e-mail to with the following text in the message body (not the "Subject" line): subscribe NIHTOC-L your name (Example: subscribe NIHTOC-L Beth Hodges)
  • Contract Opportunities Contract Opportunities lists all federal government contracting opportunities that exceed $25,000, including major solicitations, contract awards, subcontracting opportunities, and other procurement information. This resource is most useful for faculty and staff, although there are some valuable opportunities for graduate students and postdoctoral scholars. Email alerts can be set up by establishing search agents with specific sets of criteria.
