Featured Announcement

Welcome Back from ORSP

As we begin this semester, I wanted to reach out and welcome everyone back for the new academic year. We are excited to see all the interesting and engaging projects ramping up around campus, and ORSP is here to help you find external support for them.

I’m pleased to announce that our extremely hardworking and dedicated faculty submitted 318 proposals last fiscal year resulting in a large increase of external grant support in comparison to the previous year.

Go Gators!

Grants Management Tip of the Week

ORSP Offers Free External Pre-Review of Federal Proposals

ORSP will consider and pay for a pre-review of your proposal to a federal agency, if the narrative section is submitted one month before the proposal is due. If you feel you meet this criterion, please e-mail Jessica Mankus (jmankus@sfsu.edu) with a draft proposal narrative one month prior to the submission deadline. Include in your e-mail names of several federally funded researchers who are working in the subject/research area of your proposal.

If you are applying for a grant...
  • Review the funding opportunity announcement to confirm appropriateness and eligibility
  • Tell ORSP you want to apply by filling out our online PI CheckList
  • Consider contacting the Program Officer to discuss suitability of idea(s)
  • Stay on the Route to Successful Grant Submissions
