About OSP

The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) functions under the direction of the Provost, managing matters related to externally funded sponsored grants and contracts awarded to Jacksonville State University (JSU). The OSP is committed to the support and development of these activities by the university's faculty and staff.

Sponsored Programs assists university personnel in three phases:

  • External Sponsor-Funded Research - Assistance in locating funding sources.
  • Pre-Award - Assistance in writing, budget development, internal approvals, and submitting proposals to external funders.
  • Post Award - Assistance in managing programmatic functions of funded projects, including communication with funders, budget modification, and guidance with university procedures.
