Welcome to the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (RSP).
RSP’s goal is to expand the external funding base of The Graduate Center’s research, teaching, and public service missions.
We seek to promote a culture of academic research and assist faculty, staff, and students in obtaining external funding in order to develop and maintain faculty and student research. Our office is the central administrative unit for overseeing Graduate Center applications for — and awards of — governmental and foundation funding.
Through in-person, individualized advising sessions, we assist researchers of all levels with identifying suitable funding opportunities and preparing competitive applications. If you receive an award, we guide you through the process of setting up, managing, and closing out your project.
Our services include:
- Identifying appropriate funding opportunities
- Project development guidance (including budget)
- Proposal review and editing
- Oversight of official institutional review, authorization, and submission of proposals
- Liaising with the Research Foundation in connection with post-award administration
- Coordination with relevant Graduate Center departments to ensure compliance with GC and sponsor requirements and regulations
We also provide a variety of tools, training resources, and important information about policies and procedures.
