Office of Sponsored Programs

San José State University faculty and staff are encouraged to seek external funding for specific projects undertaken to further the mission of the university in teaching, research, and public service. To that end the SJSU Research Foundation Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) partners with the SJSU Office of Research to assist faculty in the pursuit of external funding for sponsored research, service projects, and other discretionary activities. OSP serves as the central coordination point for all grants and contracts, and works closely with principal investigators (PIs) to ensure compliance with Federal, state, and institutional policies. For an overview of the OSP process, please review the Research Project Life Cycle document.
