Office of Grants and Sponsored Programs

The Office of Grants and Sponsored Programs (OGSP) is pleased to offer guidance to faculty, administrators and staff on the grant application process.  The OGSP’s mission is to assist with identifying, developing and submitting grant applications for scholarly projects that enhance and inspire student learning.

The OGSP provides expertise in two types of funding: government agency support (public) and independent and corporate foundation funding (private).

We encourage all faculty and staff who are interested in pursuing a grant for their project to contact the OGSP as soon as possible, so that we may guide you through this process.  We have invested substantial resources to help you locate grant opportunities and to submit successful proposals.  Below are links to various sections of the OGSP website to help get you started.
