The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs Administration (ORSPA) administers grant proposals, grant awards and contracts awarded to ETSU for research and sponsored programs.  We also provide outreach services to the university community which includes providing workshops on grant and research-related topics and communicating funding opportunities information.  In addition, we administer the ETSU Research Development Committee grants and the Appalachian Student Research Forum.  The Director of Sponsored Programs reports directly to the Vice Provost for Research and Sponsored Programs.
