Office of Sponsored Programs
What is the Office of Sponsored Programs?
The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) assists Agnes Scott College faculty and staff with the submission of proposals for external support of research, creative, instructional, and service activities. From the inception of an idea to the submission of a proposal, the OSP offers professional assistance in all phases of the process. The OSP assists in the preparation of the project budget, review and completion of any required certifications, review of the proposal for compliance issues, and the transmittal of the proposal to the funder. In addition, the Office is responsible for monitoring all grant activity, ensuring accountability and compliance with applicable federal regulations and College policies, and overseeing the reporting process.
The OSP is responsible for assuring that submitted proposals conform to sponsor guidelines and College policies, and if funded, that projects comply with sponsor requirements and applicable College policies and procedures. Resources are available to match potential funding sources to ideas and to assist in the interpretation of sponsor guidelines.
The OSP currently oversees a total of $3.72 million in federal grants in the fields of psychology, biology, economics, mathematics, chemistry and physics.
What is a "Sponsored" Program?
A college program is "sponsored" if it solicits and receives a restricted award (i.e. the funds can only be used for that program) from a source outside the normal operating budget (i.e. financed through external funds) in order to support various instructional, research and public service activities.
