The Mission

“ORSP’s mission is to advance research and external support by providing leadership and professional assistance for faculty, students, and staff in pursuit of a wide range of educational goals.”


Welcome back, Fresno State faculty!


We are looking forward to an exciting and productive year helping to secure extramural funding for your research, training and other creative activities. Please review the list of workshops we’ll be offering, and consider participating. These have been designed to target a range of faculty interests and levels of experience with the grants and contracts application process, in service of your professional intellectual and student training pursuits.


We look forward to working with each of you in the coming year!
