​​Welcome! As part of Academic Affairs, ​the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) offers services to UWSP faculty and staff regarding grants, contracts, and research endeavors. We work closely with agency stakeholders and UW personnel to review and submit proposals to external sponsors and accept funding on behalf of the University for research, instruction, and other sponsored activities. We support the grant-seeking and research communities by providing guidance on grants and research compliance to enhance investigators' abilities to receive and manage world-class granting and research opportunities.
