Office of Sponsored Programs
The mission of the Office of Sponsored Programs is to support the University’s strategic priorities of knowledge, innovation, and transformation through the pursuit of external funding and the responsible stewardship of awards.
The Office of Sponsored Programs seeks to foster an environment that supports faculty and staff engagement in sponsored projects in ways that promote meaningful contributions to science, faculty scholarship that positively impacts student learning, and transformative opportunities for engagement in educational, research, and service experiences.
Sponsored Programs provides technical assistance in the following areas: identifying potential funding sources; developing proposals and budgets; facilitating compliance with federal, state, sponsoring agency, and University regulations; completing electronic applications; submitting proposals to sponsoring agencies; negotiating contracts and other award agreements; accepting award documents; administering post-award non-accounting issues, including subawards, award modifications, no-cost extensions, and budget revisions; and administering internally-funded grant programs.
