Grants: About

The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) provides comprehensive support to members of the Armstrong community engaged in the preparation and submission of research proposals and the management of funded research projects. The Office assists faculty with the process of applying for external funding in support of professional, and creative activities including: basic research, applied research, fellowships, curriculum development, community outreach, international exchange, sabbatical support, and faculty-guided student research.

Potential applicants should contact the OSP as early in the process as possible. Note: applicants for federal funding must inform OSP of their intent to apply at least six weeks in advance of the due date (without advance planning, projects - particularly those submitted electronically - can be jeopardized).

At least seven working days before the date the proposal is due to the funder, you must submit to the OSP a final draft of your proposal and budget along with an Approval to Submit Proposal for External Funding Form  signed by your chair and dean. OSP will review your proposal and then will submit it for approval to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs and the Vice President for Finance. Once the final approvals are obtained OSP will arrange for delivery of the proposal to the funder.
