Welcome to the Virginia Union University

Office of Sponsored Programs

The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) provides services and support to Virginia Union University (VUU) faculty and staff seeking outside funding for projects of benefit to the VUU community. The division disseminates information concerning appropriate funding opportunities and offers guidance to the campus community in the development and submission of proposals and in the negotiation and finalization of grants and contracts. Further, it assists with various administrative issues arising from extramurally funded projects and acts as the liaison with the University’s Institutional Review Board (IRB) for the Protection of Human Subjects for projects funded through grants and contracts.

The division is committed to augmenting institutional resources in order to enhance VUU’s research and educational programming. Through a coordinated effort to match VUU’s faculty and staff with extramural sponsors, the division functions as a catalyst in transforming the creativity of the VUU community into the actuality of funded research, training, and technical assistance projects.

This web site is designed to provide information to faculty members and other University community staff seeking grant funding opportunities, as well as faculty and administrators interested in preparing proposals for submission.
