Pivot is managed by the Community of Science, but also contains extensive information in the humanities and arts. It is a great resource for funding for dissertation funding, research travel, or postdoctoral study.

GrantForward is another excellent database of funding opportunities.

National Physical Science Consortium
The National Physical Consortium is a partnership between government agencies and laboratories, industry, and higher education. The NPSC's goal is to increase the number of American citizens with graduate degrees in the physical sciences and related engineering fields, emphasizing recruitment of a diverse applicant pool including women and minorities. The NPSC Graduate Fellowship is unique in being: open to all American citizens; lasting for up to six years; providing a $20,000 annual stipend; covering tuition; allowing a fellow also to hold a research or teaching assistant-ship; including one or two paid summer internships with a government agency; providing a mentor and the opportunity for a lasting relationship with the sponsor.

NASA Harriett G. Jenkins Pre-doctoral Fellowship Project (JPFP)
The NASA Harriet G. Jenkins Pre-doctoral Fellowship Project (JPFP) was developed in 2000 with a mission to increase the number of under represented persons with master's and doctoral degrees in the NASA pipeline, and ultimately in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce.

The Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans
The purpose of The Paul & Daisy Soros Fellowships for New Americans is to provide opportunities for continuing generations of able and accomplished New Americans to achieve leadership in their chosen fields. The Program is established in recognition of the contributions New Americans have made to American life and in gratitude for the opportunities the United States has afforded the donors and their family. Applicants must be: Graduate Incentives for Growth Awards (GIGA)
GIGA provides graduate student funding for one or two years: Due to the nature of the available funds, an award can be used only for graduate student support (i.e., teaching, research or outreach assistant-ships, fellowships, etc.). No salaries, operations or other expenses can be provided from this source.

National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF GREFP)
The National Science Foundation aims to ensure the vitality of the human resource base in biological science, technology, engineering, mathematics, physical science, earth science, and social science in the United States and to reinforce its diversity by offering approximately, 1,000 fellowships in this competition. The Graduate Research Fellowship provides three years of support for graduate study leading to research=based masters or doctoral degrees and is intended for students who are at the early stages of their graduate study.

The Hertz Foundation
The Hertz Foundation selects, supports, and mentors the brightest technical people in the nation, giving them all possible freedom to find their creative limits. By further providing them opportunities to interact as a community, we help equip them to meet the John Hertz's challenge to serve the nation. The fellowship provides: The Rhodes Trust
Funds two years of graduate study at Oxford. Includes full tuition and expenses and living stipend.

Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF)
The Department of Energy Computational Science Graduate Fellowship (DOE CSGF) program provides outstanding benefits and opportunities to students pursuing doctoral degrees in fields of study that use high performance computing to solve complex science and engineering problems. The program fosters a community of bright, energetic and committed Ph.D. Students, alumni, DOE laboratory staff and other scientists who share a common desire to impact the nation while advancing their science. Fellowship students represent diverse scientific and engineering disciplines but the common thread is their use of mathematical and computing techniques for their research.

East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes for U.S. Graduate Students (EAPSI)
NSF and selected foreign counterpart science and technology agencies sponsor international research institutes for US graduate students in seven East Asia and Pacific locations at times set by the counterpart agencies between June and August each year. These Summer Institutes (EAPSI) operate similarly and the research visits to a particular location take place at the same time.

EPA Star Graduate Fellowship
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), as part of its Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program, is offering Graduate Fellowships for master's and doctoral level students in environmental fields of study. The Agency plans to award approximately 80 new fellowships. Master's level students may receive support for a maximum of two years and three years for doctoral students. The fellowship provides up to $42,000 per year of support per fellowship.

National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowships
As a means of increasing the number of U.S. Citizens and nationals trained in science and engineering disciplines of military importance, the Department of Defense (DoD) plans to award approximately 200 new three-year graduate fellowships. The fellowships are awarded to applicants who will pursue a doctoral degree in, or closely related to, an area of DoD interest.

PhD Dissertation Funding

American Association of University Women
