Office of Research and Sponsored Programs
We Change Lives
The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) functions as the focal point of McNeese State University’s research activities. All grants and contracts are processed through the ORSP for approval, budget verification, reproduction, and submittal to the appropriate funding agency. Upon award, all grants and contracts are administered by ORSP. ORSP maintains a library of grant and contract sources and provides assistance to faculty in grant/contract preparation and submittal.
ALL GRANT PROPOSALS AND CONTRACTS MUST BE SUBMITTED THROUGH THE OFFICE OF RESEARCH AND SPONSORED PROGRAMS. ORSP IS RESPONSIBLE FOR OBTAINING AUTHORIZED SIGNATURES AND CERTIFICATIONS FOR SUBMISSIONS ON BEHALF OF MCNEESE STATE UNIVERSITY.
