Become part of the grant growth at ESU!
The mission of the Office of Sponsored Projects and Research (OSPR) is to advance the research enterprise at East Stroudsburg University by promoting an environment that fosters creativity, collaboration, and community.
The OSPR will assist you in securing funding for all of your scholarly endeavors. The office is a one-stop-shop committed to providing quality service and support to the University community. Our team partners with faculty, administrators, and staff, assisting them from the pre-award phase (concept development and identification of potential external funding sources, proposal and budget preparation, and submission of competitive proposals) to post-award (close out and reporting).
The OSPR also offers guidance and support for the Faculty Development and Research (FDR) grants which are funded by the Office of the Provost.
