Welcome to Shepherd University’s Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP)

What are “Sponsored Programs”?

“Sponsored Programs” refer to all the projects, activities, and initiatives across campus which are financed in whole or in part through grants from external funders.

It is the goal of our office to nurture and sustain a culture of successful, varied, and well-supported sponsored programs at Shepherd University.

Awards are made to the University, not to an individual PI/PD. The OSP has a responsibility to ensure that all institutional, foundation, state and federal regulations and policies are upheld.

Reminder: All grant applications must undergo internal review and approval prior to the funder’s due date. Please complete an 
Intent to Submit Form as soon as a funding source for a project is identified.
Be prepared to share the complete proposal with OSP at least 10 business days prior to the external due date.
