External Grants - Office of Research & Sponsored Programs

External Grants     

In an era of ever stricter and more limited budgetary times in higher education, external grants play an increasingly important role in bringing in new sources of funds to supplement UCO's educational mission, to attract, retain and develop faculty, improve faculty relations, purchase equipment and fund valuable research, creative and scholarly activities.

The Office of Research & Sponsored Programs (ORSP) oversees all aspects of the pre-award grant process to federal, state, and local agencies, with the exception of agencies that require a 501(c)(3) nonprofit status to apply.

ORSP Services

As part of promoting transformational learning, the ORSP assists faculty and staff through the process of identifying, developing, and submitting a grant proposal. Our services include:

Opportunities Booklet

FIND YOUR OPPORTUNITY: As part of its mission, the Office of Research & Sponsored Programs acts as an outspoken advocate for all UCO research, creative, and scholarly activities by creating a welcoming environment, supporting faculty initiatives and by facilitating the integration of research, creative, and scholarly activities into teaching tools. The Office of Research & Sponsored Programs serves as a liaison among faculty, staff, students, other universities, business, industry and funding agencies by assisting with external grant and collaborative opportunities.

A copy of ORSP Opportunities Booklet is available in NUC 341.   You can also contact the ORSP at research@uco.edu and one will be delivered to you.
