This guide is intended for faculty and student researchers. It contains information about the Open Researcher and Contributor ID (ORCID) registry, including how to get, use, and connect your ORCID iD.

ORCID and Grants

Incorporating your ORCID record into your grant workflow can help make the process easier. You can use ORCID to import your previously funded grants, published scholarship, and biographical information when applying for new grants, or searching for funding organizations. 

On this page, you'll find some resources and instructions for how to make your ORCID benefit you during the grant process. Check back often, because new integrations can be added at any time!

Using ORCID to search for grants in Pivot

Pivot is a program that UNLV subscribes to which allows researchers to search for new grant opportunities. Researchers can link their ORCID record to their Pivot account and automatically import their previous work. This makes it easier for researchers because it reduces the time you spend adding your scholarship to locate new relevant funding opportunities. 

You can find detailed instructions for claiming your Pivot account in this get started guide by OSP. To connect your ORCID record, please see the steps below.

1. After you claim or create your Pivot account, click Edit Profile. A new tab or window will open with the Edit Profile Screen.

2. Click the +Add button next to ORCID, then select Get or Associate an ORCID iD.

3. Log in to ORCID and authorize Pivot to access your ORCID record.

4. Your previous work is automatically imported. Now you can search for new funding opportunities!

Using ORCID with SciENcv

Using ORCID with SciENcv

Click Manage SciENcv in the SciENcv section.

Click to edit your Mini Profile and add your ORCID iD. (Skip this step if you've already linked ORCID to My NCBI.)

Click on the link in the SciENcv box to create a new CV.

Give your Biosketch a name, choose the format you need, then choose ORCID as the External source.

After you have created the BioSketch, biographical information will be automatically imported, and you can import citations from ORCID. For example, in the Personal Statement section click on "Select citations", choose the ORCID tab, select the citations you want added and then click "Save citations".
