Welcome to the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs!

The office performs the following services:

  • identifies funding opportunities;
  • disseminates grant-related information to faculty and administrators;
  • organizes and supports the development of grant proposals and budgets;
  • facilitates grant writing workshops to assist faculty in developing competitive proposals;
  • reviews and approves proposals before submission to ensure compliance with both UTC standards and sponsor requirements;
  • assists faculty in submission of timely, accurate, performance reports;
  • assists with research and statistics needed for proposal development;
  • obtains internal approvals for grant submissions; and
  • reviews and processes contracts and sub-contracts awarded to the university.

This website has a great deal of information to help faculty, staff, and administrators identify and explore funding opportunities, understand compliance and regulatory issues, prepare competitive proposals and budgets, and administer grant programs.
