Office of Sponsored Research and Programs

The Office of Sponsored Research and Programs (OSRP) promotes externally funded research, instruction, public service, academic and institutional support, enhancement, and scholarship and fellowship projects at Southeastern Louisiana University.

All projects seeking external funding (through grants, contracts, agreements, etc.) must be reviewed and approved prior to submission to granting agencies. The review process begins with approval of the principal investigator's department and college. OSRP and administration require fourteen working days to complete the remainder of the review and approval process. Only proposals approved by Southeastern's administration may be submitted to external agencies.

All proposals for external funding are electronically routed through the Southeastern Workday GRANTS Module.
