Community of Science (COS)

Community of Science (COS) is a third party database of funding announcements for grants, awards and fellowships from around the world in all disciplines. 

COS Pivot combines a database of scholar profiles with a database of funding opportunities from public and private-sector sources.  Pivot’s purpose is to compile researcher profiles and match them to current funding opportunities and faculty, from inside or outside the McMaster research community.


The COS funding opportunities database and Pivot profiles can be accessed from an on-campus computer or off-campus via VPN at .
