Sponsored Research Opportunities

Sponsored research plays a crucial role in advancing scientific knowledge, driving innovation, and addressing societal challenges. Initiatives sponsored by external organizations provide funding to the university to support specific research activities or projects that align with the sponsor's interests or objectives. These projects are administered through a formal agreement and are supported by the Sponsored Program Services office of the University. 

Research agreements often outline the terms and conditions of the funding, including the scope of work, project timelines, budgetary allocations, intellectual property rights, and reporting requirements. The University researchers or faculty members who lead the sponsored research projects are responsible for conducting the research according to the agreed-upon terms and delivering the specified outcomes. 

Develop Your Talent Pipeline

Sponsored research can provide valuable opportunities for students to gain hands-on research experience and contribute to cutting-edge discoveries in their fields of study. As such, sponsored research can be a meaningful tool to help companies build and maintain a pipeline for talent development.
