Office of Sponsored Programs

The University of Hartford's Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) is located in room 113A (ground level) of Auerbach Hall in the Barney School of Business.

Operating under the office of the Provost, OSP serves as the initial point of contact for faculty and staff seeking external funding for their research. We are the lead office on campus for grant management, working closely with Financial Accounting Services, which oversees post-award financial reporting, and the department administrators in the schools.


OSP staff disseminate potential funding opportunities through UNotes and upon request, as well as oversee the grant application process, ensure compliance with university and funder requirements, and provide post-award coordination with Financial Accounting Services. It is OSP that submits applications on behalf of the university and the faculty involved.
