UW Research

Sponsored Project / Sponsored Program

Any exchange transaction between the University and the sponsor that may occur in a number of forms.

A University sponsored project (can also be known as a sponsored program) is not a purchase or sale of goods or services or “work for hire” arrangement but instead is a mutual exchange involving the University and a sponsor.

Sponsors may provide funding, equipment or other tangible items, such as goods or services, for research, training, education programs, analytical services or other rights or goods.
