Sponsored Programs

What are Sponsored Programs?

Sponsored programs are projects or activities that are funded by an external organization such as a federal, state, county, or city organization. At San José State University the application for a sponsored program is handled by the Office of Sponsored Programs within the SJSU Research Foundation.

What is the The SJSU Research Foundation (SJSURF)?

An integral part of the Division of Research and Innovation, the SJSU Research Foundation is a separate entity from SJSU that exists solely to provide administrative and business support to the campus research enterprise.
