**** OSRP staff will be attending the Virtual NCURA Conference August 11-14 and will have very limited ability to provide immediate assistance.  Please plan accordingly and contact us in advance if you have a proposal due during this time. ****

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 or by phone. 

Effective June 1, 2020, OSRP will be open by appointment. To schedule an appointment, please contact the office by phone 910.775.4249 or email

The first step for any sponsored program is to find the right funding opportunity.  OSRP has a subscription to the SPIN Database and has compiled a list of funding search tools, which are listed below.
