Office of Sponsored Projects

The Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) serves to assist, guide and support a culture of research and exploration for Bellarmine employees.

All Bellarmine employees (faculty [and supervised students]; staff) who are interested in seeking outside funding through grants or contracts, must contact the OSP for assistance with the coordination, budget development, review and submission of all externally contracted funds. Although early contact with OSP is always best, all proposals for external funding should be received by OSP at least 10 business days in advance of submission. Faculty and staff are strongly encouraged to work closely with their department chairs, supervisors and deans throughout the submission process to facilitate successful applications for external support. Externally sponsored recipients must also work closely with OSP during the funded period to meet all reporting requirements, including extensions, renewals and annual and final reports.
