The Office of Grants, Sponsored Programs & Research (OGSPR) provides support for faculty and staff seeking external funding. We can help with every stage of the proposal process, from helping to arrange visits or conference calls with program officers to navigating the University proposal approval process. Additionally, the OGSPR maintains a list of mentors who have successfully applied to a wide variety of state, federal, and private organizations and who are happy to help you prepare a successful application.
The principal internal grant program for funding faculty research is the Faculty Grants Program. These awards, made exclusively to faculty, support a variety of activities including research, publication, travel to present, special academic activities, and release time. In addition to the faculty grants program, the University makes other awards, such as those awarded to students, available. These awards can help faculty engage undergraduates in research projects.
