Sponsored Programs and Support

During the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Office of Sponsored Programs will remain open. We have staff working both on campus and remotely who will answer your call or email as soon as possible. ISU laboratories will remain open as long as campuses are open.

The situation with COVID-19 is very fluid and changing daily.  The Office of Sponsored Programs, including Grants & Contracts Accounting, is handling proposal, grant, contract issues that arise on a case by case and agency by agency basis.  The offices are committed to remain open and serve the campus community.  Should you need any assistance, please contact any one of our staff at their university email or campus extension and we will get back to you as soon as possible.


The Office of Sponsored Programs and Support is now located in room 142 of the Administration Building.

The office is here to assist ISU faculty and staff as they develop proposals for external funding for sponsored research as well as scholarly and community service projects.

Pre-Award and Post-Award Assistance with Proposals or Grants

We support pre and post-award research efforts at the university by promoting the development, implementation, and coordination of sponsored research.

We work with Project Investigators (PI) and Project Directors (PD) to identify potential funding sources and to develop and submit proposals to funding agencies. All while making sure that research is compliant with sponsor guidelines and university policies.

We also negotiate the terms and conditions of awards, contracts, and amendments and develop subawards/subcontracts for collaborative arrangements with non-ISU agencies and non-ISU consultants.

While the PI/PD manages the grant, our office will assist with extensions or changes of PIs, and ISU Grants and Contracts Accounting staff will provide assistance with purchasing, travel, accounts payable, project payroll, sponsor billing, and financial reporting.
