Office of Sponsored Programs
The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) mission is to enhance and facilitate the ability of faculty, staff, and students to develop and achieve their goals in research, educational programming, and service delivery through successful competition for external funding. This mission will be accomplished while maintaining responsible stewardship of extramural sponsored projects as directed by the values of our office and the applicable federal, state, and agency regulations and policies.
OSP is a unit within Research and Public Service. We are dedicated to providing progressive services that give the faculty and staff of JMU a competitive edge in obtaining external funding. OSP coordinates externally funded research and regulatory training, and is the authorized institutional representative for grants, contracts, and cooperative agreements.
