This workshop is designed to help IU graduate students become proficient in using the advanced search features of COS Pivot (formerly Community of Science) and IRIS (Illinois Researcher Information Service) databases to identify funding for graduate study and research. Both databases are interdisciplinary and accessible to all IU students and faculty.

Topics to be covered include:
  • how to access the databases on- and off-campus
  • choosing keywords relevant to funding agencies
  • limiting searches by citizenship, deadline, funding type, location, and more
  • setting up funding alerts so the latest results of your searches are automatically sent to you by e-mail
