»Welcome to the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs Administration (ORSPA) is a unit within the Chancellor's Office. It exists to provide services that support members of the Chapman University academic community who seek outside funding for research, programmatic or creative activities. The office helps faculty by disseminating information concerning appropriate funding opportunities, offering guidance on the development and submission of proposals and in the negotiation and award of grants, contracts and cooperative agreements.

In addition, we provide assistance in dealing with various administrative issues arising from extramurally funded research. ORSPA serves as the official liaison between the university and outside sponsors in order to ensure accountability and adherence to the standards of external funding entities, and to comply with federal and state guidelines and university fiscal policies. It is the central administrative office responsible for submitting proposals and coordinating the acceptance of awards on behalf of the university.
