About OSP

The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) reviews and submits proposals to external sponsors and accepts funding on behalf of the University for research, instruction, and other sponsored activity.

OSP supports the research community by establishing policies related to sponsored program funding, providing guidance and consultation, and serving as a formal liaison with the sponsor on administrative changes throughout the life of the award.

OSP is available to answer questions related to your project, visit your department or school, or provide training through CORE and other venues. Contact us!


We partner with the research community and provide oversight, administrative structure and consultation to enhance researchers’ abilities to obtain and manage sponsored programs.


We are leaders in sponsored program administration. We strive to provide the highest level of professionalism and expertise to support and promote a world-class research environment.
