Our office assists researchers in the College of Arts and Sciences who apply for and receive external funding. We approve grant proposals that will be submitted to the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP), oversee budgets from Research Cost Recovery (RCR), coordinate matching funds and cost-sharing for grant proposals, distribute announcements of funding opportunities, and compile resources for grant writers.
