Research at JSU

Sponsored Programs

The Sponsored Programs Unit (USP) is the centralized unit charged to coordinate research and sponsored program activities campus-wide. The Unit strives to maintain a supportive environment for research and scholarly endeavors, and encourages the faculty and staff to seek external funding to support the mission of the university and to explore alternative means to advance their professional interest.

USP seeks to ensure that the most up-to-date funding information is available. To that end, the following services are offered: (1) identifying funding opportunities (2) coordinating proposal and budget development and (3) assisting with project implementation and management.
