Office of Sponsored Programs

The Office of Sponsored Programs at USD partners with faculty, administrators, and graduate students to provide a variety of pre-award services for externally-funded projects.

These services include concept development and identification of potential extramural funding sources, proposal and budget preparation, and the submission of innovative, high-quality, competitive proposals. Our team is committed to providing quality service and support to the University community.

The Office of Sponsored Programs has temporarily moved to Casa Maria, located behind Founders Chapel.
