Office of Research and Grants Administration
The Office of Research and Grants Administration (ORGA) is the college's central clearinghouse for all external research and programmatic grants and contracts with government agencies and private foundations.
ORGA 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.
RIC faculty and staff generated $8.7 million in grant and contract revenue in fiscal year 2014. This past year there was a surge in activity across the disciplines as momentum to strengthen participation in student and faculty research has continued to grow.
ORGA 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, opportunities and funding announcements.
