The Office of Research and Sponsored Program's role within the university is to help faculty and staff apply for and secure external funds in support of their creative ideas and professional interests. Our staff provides the expertise needed to ensure that proposals conform to Fresno State regulations and sponsoring agency rules.

ORSP’s Mission is to assist faculty in all aspects of proposal preparation, including:

  • Identifying appropriate funding sources
  • Preparing proposal budgets
  • Completing all required assurances, certifications, and authorizations
  • Coordinating the delivery/transmission of the proposal to the funding Agency in accordance with their requirements and deadlines.

Our goal is to apply that expertise to the timely review of all proposals before they are sent to sponsors.
