External Grants at SPU

The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) supports faculty and administrators seeking and working with external funding. We provide comprehensive support designed to help you find funding opportunities, prepare applications for funding, acquire internal approvals, understand and meet agency requirements, and manage all aspects of your existing external grants including contracts, reporting and expenditures.

OSP approves and submits all academic grant applications. 

With some private funders, there are instances where OSP will coordinate with University Advancement to ensure compliance and donor stewardship. 

To ensure your grant application falls under academic research guidelines, please contact the Office of Sponsored Programs at osp@spu.edu, and review the application process:
