Office of Sponsored Programs
Effective October 15, 2017, the research support office previously known as the Office of Research Grants Administration (ORGA) will be named the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) to better align it with standard language in higher education and by our funding agencies.
The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) is the college's central clearinghouse for all external research and programmatic grants and contracts with government agencies and private foundations.
OSP supports faculty and student advancement of knowledge and scholarship across the disciplines. RIC faculty research creates student opportunities, positively affects issues that reach far beyond our campus, and generates revenue for the college and State of Rhode Island.
OSP is proud to support the many individuals and partnerships working to encourage and promote student-faculty research at RIC.
We encourage you to visit this site regularly for information on the college's research activities,
