Office of Sponsored Projects

GW Sponsored Projects Lifecycle

The Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) within the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) supports the university’s research mission by providing oversight of externally-sponsored research. OSP assists researchers with identifying appropriate funding opportunities, submitting competitive proposals and managing successful projects.

The Sponsored Projects Lifecycle

Each sponsored project follows a similar course from initial concept and development of a competitive proposal, to negotiating and setting-up the award in GW systems, through management of the award and submitting final reports to the sponsor.

A Collaborative Approach

The OSP team works closely with investigators, school-based research staff and administrators across campus to ensure success and compliance throughout all phases of a sponsored project.
