Customize Your Funding Search
A number of websites allow you to create customized searches based on keywords and other criteria, save those searches, and receive weekly emails of the results.
Pivot is the most comprehensive database of funding opportunities available. Create your own saved searches or click directly on one of dozens of subject-specific lists of opportunities hand-picked by Office of Research staff. Access is free and available to everyone with a Kerberos login.
Grants.gov includes all discretionary grants from federal grant-making agencies. Create a unique search or browse by funding categories for the 29 sponsoring federal agencies. Additionally, California Grants Portal is your one-stop destination to find all grants and loans offered on a competitive or first-come basis by California state agencies.
Philanthropy News Digest serves as a source for private foundations and other philanthropic organizations. View a list of RFPs, search by keywords, or browse by subject. Additionally, Philanthropy News Digest includes an option to sign up for RSS feeds and newsletters.

Additional Resources, Including Limited Submissions
The UC Davis Office of Research provides a number of resources to help you find funding for your research. In addition to those listed above, we also circulate newsletters each week that contain important funding opportunity announcements, in addition to pertinent news and events. While the InfoReady Review platform is a great place for researchers to find intramural funding opportunities, it is also where we coordinate the internal selection process for Limited Submission opportunities (when a Request for Proposals limits the number of proposals an institution may submit).
