Office of Research and Sponsored Programs Administration

East Tennessee State University

An Investigator's Guide to Sponsored Programs Administration

The iGuide

This guide was developed to aid members of the ETSU faculty and staff in their efforts to seek, secure, and manage financial sponsorship of their research, instruction, service, and other creative and scholarly activities.  It addresses the full scope of what we call the "sponsored program lifecycle" from the identification of funding opportunities through project closeout.  Links are provided, when available, to supporting university policy, procedures, and forms.

Proposers are urged to communicate with the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs Administration (ORSPA) early in their process of seeking sponsorship for their project or program.  We can be reached by email at or by calling (423) 439-6052.
