Sponsored Programs and Support



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.
