Access to Overleaf Commons for UCSB Faculty
Recently, the campus purchased a 500-seat campus Overleaf Commons for Institutions license. This license will provide enriched collaboration capabilities, team management capabilities, access to document templates and other enhanced features. In order to maximize the collaborative capabilities of the license, Primary Investigators and researchers are offered prioritized access to the UCSB Overleaf seats. Users with Overleaf free accounts will be able to continue using those accounts and can be invited to collaborate with projects within the Campus license environment.
If you would like access to the increased capabilities of the Commons for Institutions license, please respond to this google form and the ETS Overleaf support team will provision your account. In the meantime, you can go to https://www.overleaf.com/edu/ucsb to log in and link your existing account to the UCSB SSO instance. In order to link your account, please make certain your netID email address is listed as either as the primary or as a secondary email address on your Overleaf account.
For those who choose not to use the campus Overleaf Commons license, you may log into the UCSB Overleaf license at: overleaf.com/edu/ucsb and continue using your existing Overleaf licenses.
Eligible faculty may submit questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Boilerplate language regarding ramp-up activities for campus research
The Research Development Office has drafted text intended for grant submissions that require a description of campus research ramp-up activities. This text may be changed to be consistent with research activities described in the proposal. Up-to-date text may be found here.
If you have trouble accessing the document, please email Kelly Pillsbury (email@example.com) for a copy.

Find Funding with Pivot
Take advantage of UCSB's subscription to Pivot, a comprehensive funding opportunities database that features customized funding searches, funding opportunity tracking, deadline alerts, and more. Pivot is available to faculty, staff and students. Access is available via a campus network, or sign up for an account for off-campus access.
Research Development maintains curated lists of funding opportunities of relevance to UCSB faculty. These are a good introduction to Pivot, and a great place to start in your search for research funding.
You may need to log in if you are not on a campus network.
