Office of
Research and Sponsored Programs


The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) assists faculty and staff in applying for extramural funding, primarily, though not exclusively, from government agencies. The Office provides services at all stages of the proposal submission and pre-award process, including budget preparation; project conceptualization and development; assistance with writing, research, and editing; connections with other academic institutions, government and community agencies, and businesses and industry; and proposal technical preparation and submission.  We invite you to tour our office and learn more about our services at any time, whether you just have a great idea but don’t quite know how to turn it into a competitive proposal, or if you know what to propose but need help finding one or more funding source, or if you have identified the perfect program announcement and are ready to submit.

We are here to help.  But we need your assistance when it comes time to submit an actual proposal.  First, please start early!  Make an appointment to meet with our ORSP staff as soon as you know that you will submit an application to a specific program, and no later than 15 working days before the submission deadline in any case.  And before that meeting, please review the following Pre-Meeting Checklist and fill in the Pre-Meeting Intake Form to the best of your ability.  This will make the entire process smoother and it will help us serve you better.  Thank you and we look forward to working with you on your next grant or contract proposal.
