About OSP

Mission Statement

The mission of the Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) is to assist University faculty, graduate students and staff in obtaining external funding for their research, creative artistry, instructional and public service projects, through the media of fellowships, grants, and contracts.

A central university administrative unit within the Division of Research and Innovation Partnerships, the Office of Sponsored Projects fulfills its mission by working proactively with faculty and staff to develop their external funding interests, identifying appropriate funding opportunities, and providing assistance with all of the elements of proposal development and submission and acceptance for fellowships, grants, and contracts. Where appropriate, OSP also implements University policies pertaining to grant and contract-related research activities.
