The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) positions Clemson University and its faculty, staff and students to successfully compete for external funding through the provision of consistent, efficient and transparent systems and services delivered by a highly-skilled staff in the spirit of collaboration.
OSP consists of five (5) college-based Support Centers, a satellite office at Greenville Health System, and a central office responsible for cross-college/institutional specialized services. A Steering Committee composed of each Support Center's Manager and the members of the central office meet regularly to assure efficient operations.
Housed in each college, the OSP Support Center staff assists faculty with pre-award application preparation (including budgets), review and submission of all grant applications for investigators in that college. Support Centers also record grant awards and serve as liaison with Grants and Contracts Administration in the creation of grant accounts when funding is received.
