Office of Grants and Contracts

The Office of Grants and Contracts (OGC) may be contacted by phone, email or in person. If you'd like to have uninterrupted time with your designated research administrator, please schedule an appointment.

The OGC provides a wide range of pre-award consultative services including, but not limited to proposal preparation and submission, subcontracting advice, MTA processing. On the post-award side, we set up grant accounts and communicate with faculty and sponsors on any actions related to the grants/contracts and their financial management.

Our goal is to provide Expert, Timely and Responsive service to the faculty and staff of Penn State that are seeking and/or managing grants or other sponsored programs.

At your service!

As we strive to be the "Best in Class" we value your opinion and suggestions. Please consider leaving confidential feedback whenever you interact with our team.

Grant Proposal Submission and Deadline Process

If you are planning to submit a proposal for external funding, please complete our Notice of Intent at least 3 weeks prior to the sponsor deadline. A proposal preparation and deadline timeline was developed with a team of faculty, the Associate Dean for Research and the OGC. Please prepare your grant in concert with your OGC research administrator and in accordance with the proposal submission timeline so that we may meet PSU standards and sponsor deadlines in a timely manner, and submit a competitive and compliant grant proposal.
