The Office for Sponsored Faculty Projects (OSFP) aspires to create and sustain a dynamic culture of securing external support for faculty research, scholarship, creative endeavors, and pedagogies. We seek to simplify and clarify the grant seeking and administration processes. Our intent is to ease the burden of crafting competitive applications and managing awards.
