Sponsored Research and Programs

What We Do

Our mission is to provide comprehensive and high quality support services to faculty and staff to develop and secure external grants and contracts to implement effective research educational and public service programs in support of the institutional mission. We are your full service support office. The Office of Sponsored Research and Programs is the campus Office of the Research Foundation of SUNY which serves as the legal applicant and fiscal administrator for all grants and contracts awarded to SUNY institutions, faculty and staff.

Note: Per the Proposal Submission Policy

 The Office for Research and Sponsored Programs (OSRP) must review and approve all proposals prior to submission to an outside funding agency. Proposals are due to OSRP five (5) full business days in advance of the sponsor's deadline. This applies to paper and electronic proposal submissions.
