Research and Grants Administration Contact Information - The Office of Sponsored Projects & Research (OSPR)

All Federal Government agency sponsored proposals, State and local Government sponsored proposals should be routed through the OSPR. All other classifications would normally go through Development but there is some overlap and the two offices do cooperate and work together.

Grant Forms

  • Sponsored Project Review Form (SPRF) - This form needs to be completed immediately the decision to apply for a grant has been made and prior to any work being carried out. Some opportunities only allow one application per institution. You are responsible for completing this form and obtaining the required signatories as far down as IRD (if applicable). The Office of Sponsored Projects & Research (OSPR) will present the document for the the remaining signatories.
  • Cost Share Form - Committing UTPB funds to projects requires prior approval from the university's executive. 
  • The submission deadline of grant proposals to the Office of Sponsored Research is at least ONE WEEK prior to the funding agency due date. Be particularly careful over holiday periods. The SPRF and copies of electronically submitted proposals should be returned to Graduate Studies and Research in MB 1208.
