ESU encourages faculty and staff to explore several avenues for funding their research projects, including external sources such as government agencies, private foundations, and other grant-making organizations.

 grants are disbursed from ESU to faculty and staff members to support their research efforts. Some internal grants, such as Entrepreneurship Across the Campus and the Faculty Development and Research (FDR) grants are funded by the Office of the Provost.

Both internal and external grants require diligent preparation although the submission process varies. The OSPR will help faculty and staff determine which type of grant may suit their research needs and guide them in developing appropriate proposals for that specific opportunity.

NEW! Grant Writing Support Workshops: The OSPR staff will be convening workshops to assist faculty in writing proposals for both external grants and internal grants. For questions, contact Christina McDonald, ext 7908,
