Research and Sponsored Programs

The Ohio University Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) supports faculty, staff, and students in their efforts to seek, secure, and manage extramural funding in the most accurate and efficient manner. ORSP is responsible for endorsing all proposals submitted to external agencies by the Ohio University community. ORSP staff aid in proposal development and award negotiation, ensuring alignment with sponsor guidelines and university, state, and federal policies.

ORSP currently uses the LEO Electronic Portal for proposal management. We are working to transition to Cayuse, an electronic Research Administration software. Find out more about Cayuse on our Cayuse webpage
