About Us

Mission Statement

The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) at the University of San Diego (USD) is committed to providing quality service and support to the University community. Our team partners with faculty, administrators, and graduate students, assisting them from concept development and identification of potential extramural funding sources, through proposal and budget preparation, to the submission of innovative, high quality, competitive proposals. After an award, OSP supports the non-financial management of the award, culminating in the project closeout. We are committed to nurturing, facilitating, and supporting a growing research enterprise positioned to gain a standing among preeminant U.S. Institutions.
