Our team partners with faculty, administrators, and staff, assisting them from the pre-award phase (concept development and identification of potential external funding sources, proposal and budget preparation, and submission of competitive proposals) to post-award (close out and reporting).
The OSPR also manages the Faculty Development and Research (FDR) grants which are funded by the Office of the Provost, the Entrepreneurship Across the Colleges grants,and other internal funding opportunities.
