Office of Sponsored Programs & Research

Pursuing an Internal or External Research Grant? Your Success Starts Here.

The Office of Sponsored Programs & Research (OSPR) administrates internal and external research grants at Liberty University. We support faculty, staff, and students from all academic disciplines who are interested in applying for research grants. OSPR advises on all aspects of grants management from initial application to award closeout, assisting with budgeting, contracts, reporting, and compliance.

Our internal grants process awards faculty and students funding for innovative research ideas, conference presentations, and more. Our external grants process can be highly competitive whether you are seeking federal, state, local, or industry funding. Our pre-award team will help you prepare a high-quality and well-constructed proposal. If you are awarded a grant, our post-award team will help you manage all aspects of the grant to ensure you can remain focused on your research.
