The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) supports faculty and staff in seeking and administering funding for research programs through grants, contracts, and other external funding opportunities. ORSP provides services and support to enable members of the university community to compete successfully for outside funding and to manage their funded programs successfully.

We were proud recipients recently of the Silver Certificate from Lehigh's Sustainable Office Program!

To get started, find your Contract and Grant Specialist.

To navigate the proposal submission and award management process, use the Researcher's Toolbox.
