About Us

The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) supports the advancement of our educational, research and public service missions by assisting with the grand process and overall grant management. The Children's OSP administers awards of sponsored programs and projects to provide excellent stewardship to our supporters and Children's as a whole. The goal of the Children's OSP is to guide individuals through the grant process while developing the infrastructure that sustains research and programs at Children's 

We can help with every aspect of the grant process. Our staff members:

  • Provide training and support for proposal development.
  • Issue notices of award and set up grant accounts for use.
  • Develop institutional policies that relate to sponsored activities.

In addition, we help gain the approvals needed to submit proposals, implement financial management, and accept awards and subgrant funds.

We process all other grants with external, restricted funding for projects and partnerships between Children’s and its supporters, including government agencies, foundations, private companies and peer institutions.
