Office of Research and Sponsored Programs

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs administers awards for sponsored research, programs, and projects. As a service organization, the ORSP mission is to support the Morehouse faculty and the administrative departments that sponsor Morehouse College programs. The overall goal of the office is to develop and maintain the infrastructure needed to support the research and training activities of the College. This includes developing the institutional capabilities for research and public service, identifying sources of support for sponsored projects, developing and implementing training programs for proposal writing, developing institutional policies that relate to sponsored activities and to assist with the proposal development. 

ORSP operates under the auspices of the Office of Academic Affairs and provides assistance to the Morehouse community, which includes both pre- and post-award administration as outlined below:
