ORS - Sponsored Research Home

The Office of Research Services (ORS) assists the faculty and staff of Saint Joseph’s University to seek extramural funding for sponsored projects and administer grants and contracts awarded by governmental or private sources.

The ORS assists with identification of potential funding sources through customized funding searches. Funding guidelines and application materials are provided upon request. A central research administration library is housed in the ORS The library includes annual directories of grant support, agency announcements and a variety of federal circulars and grants policy documents.

The ORS subscribes to the electronic funding search engine InfoEd SPIN. SPIN may be accessed by all SJU faculty and staff while connected to the SJU network on campus.

To facilitate competitive and successful applications, the ORS staff assists faculty with proposal development through guided discussion that addresses both funding agency and SJU requirements.
