OSP Staff


The field of sponsored programs serves a critical function within colleges and universities with respect to external funding and compliance with federal rules and regulations. An office of sponsored programs has the dual responsibility of assisting faculty staff and students in their grant funding efforts, as well as ensuring fulfillment of agreements with external sponsors.

The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) at PSU is here to help faculty, staff, and students with their grant-funding efforts in compliance federal regulations, the wishes of sponsors, and best practices in the field.
