The Office for Government Relations
advocates for non-competitive congressional funding and works with government representatives on policy and appropriations initiatives. The Office for Research and Sponsored Projects (ORSP) handles competitive grant applications to all government agencies.
Faculty who are interested in exploring opportunities with local, state or federal agencies should start with the Office for Research and Sponsored Projects. If a project would be enhanced by the involvement of the Office for Government Relations, ORSP staff will begin a dialogue.
