Office of Sponsored Programs

The Office of Sponsored Programs Awards Manager will assist in identifying external funding sources (including early career and minority serving institution opportunities) to support the mission of the Research Excellence Program (REP). The REP mission is to provide all of the necessary resources and support for enabling faculty, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, professional residents, undergraduate students, and research staff to be successful in obtaining research funding and conducting their research.
