Sponsored Research and Programs

UNCP has taken steps to slow the spread of COVID-19. Nevertheless, the Office of Sponsored Research and Programs is available to faculty and staff for all the research development, proposal submission, and award management services that we routinely provide; please reach out to us through email osrp@uncp.edu or by phone. 

The mission of the Office of Sponsored Research and Programs (OSRP) is to provide support to UNCP’s faculty, staff, and students in their research, scholarship, and public service endeavors and to advance the university’s mission by providing leadership and expertise in research administration.

2020 Faculty Summer Research Grant Program

Deadline - 5:00 PM March 27, 2020

The Office of Sponsored Research and Programs is pleased to announce the 2020 Faculty Summer Research Grant Program. Each individual project may have a maximum budget of $5,000, including a stipend of up to $3,300. The objectives of this year’s Faculty Summer Research Grant program are to encourage personal faculty research in a recognized discipline and to provide seed funds to enhance the prospects of obtaining extramural, competitive support. Faculty members who are eligible to serve as principal investigators (PI) on externally funded grants are encouraged to apply for funding and proposals must include specific plans to disseminate findings and to obtain extramural funding. Faculty applying for seed funding must describe the contributions that his/her research is expected to make towards advancing the individual’s program of research, as well as the mission, vision and values of UNCP.

Questions about the program guidelines should be sent by email to osrp@uncp.edu.

COVID-19 Update: Proposals can be approved electronically by the faculty Chair and Dean and no signatures are required. Please have your Chair and Dean send an email message with the approval to osrp@uncp.edu.
