Office of Sponsored Programs Mission
Our office location has changed! We are now located in Herman D. James Hall, 3rd floor - click here for a close up view of the Glassboro Campus map and James Hall.
The mission of the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) is to provide the Rowan University faculty with relevant information and guidance for the submission of quality proposals to federal, state, and industrial sponsors, and to provide effective stewardship of awarded funds. Post-award (grant accounting) functions have been added to the OSP. Please see the links below for further information on the reorganization and staffing functions.
A two-page “Proposal Planning Form” must be completed by the Principal Investigator (PI), printed, signed by the PI, the PI’s Chair, and the PI’s Dean and submitted to OSP within FIVE DAYS of the sponsor’s deadline.
If your project is not at the stage to submit the Proposal Planning Form, please submit an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and provide a brief description of the plan. Identifying the sponsor, brief scope of work, preliminary budget, and any additional requirements, such as but not limited to personnel, space, cost share, equipment, IRB, IACUC, and IBC related information is not required, but will faciliate a response from OSP and provide some preliminary information related to your inquiry or notification.
