Sponsored Programs and Research Administration

Sponsored programs and research administration serves the Salem State community by supporting those who are seeking external funding for special academic programs, professional development, curriculum development, research, community projects, and outside collaboration. Sponsored programs services include:

  • Search for potential funding sources and obtain application information and materials
  • With specific content provided, writing of draft and final proposals with principal investigator (PI) or writing team
  • Advice and assistance regarding sufficient timing and planning to obtain final approval signatures and documents 
  • Guidance, information and contacts for budget development, campus collaboration, facilities, etc., for project planning

We have access to the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) Grants Resource Center (GRC) faculty alert system which enables researchers and administrators to set up alerts on-line to get monthly notification of appropriate federal and private funding opportunities. Please contact Elaine Milo at extension 8031 to obtain login and password information. We can assist you in tailoring these searches so that they are customized to your funding needs and academic area of interest.

We urge you to communicate with us early to ensure a smooth process!
