Sponsored Programs Administration

The Office of Sponsored Programs Administration (SPA) helps researchers find, obtain, and manage awards that fund scholarly research and other activities. The SPA also provides support for the proper stewardship of those resources.

Featured Funding Opportunities

SPA enables researchers to locate funding opportunities from federal and private grant sources. It also guides investigators new to the field of research.

  • Funding for new investigators
  • Funding requests to private sponsors
  • Funding resources
  • Sponsored award opportunities

Training Sessions

To support researchers in navigating an often complex system, the SPA provides training sessions that cover necessary topics including:

  • Grants 101
  • National Institutes of Health (NIH) forms and guidelines for submitting grants
  • Good clinical practice
  • Electronic Research Grant Organizer (ERGO), a web-based system that allows forms and/or grants to be submitted electronically through institutional processes.
