The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs Administration (ORSPA) administers grant proposals, grant awards and contracts awarded to ETSU for research and sponsored programs.  We also provide outreach services to the university community which includes providing workshops on grant and research-related topics and communicating funding opportunities information.  In addition, we administer the ETSU Research Development Committee grants and the Appalachian Student Research Forum.  The Director of Sponsored Programs reports directly to the Vice Provost for Research and Sponsored Programs.


  Submitting an application to NIH?  Make sure you know the eSubmission Basics.

  NIH Announces Updated Policy for Application Submission

Effective immediately, for application due dates after April 16, 2014, following an unsuccessful resubmission (A1) application, applicants may submit the same idea as a new (A0) application for the next appropriate due date. The NIH and AHRQ will not assess the similarity of the science in the new (A0) application to any previously reviewed submission when accepting an application for review. Although a new (A0) application does not allow an introduction or responses to the previous reviews, the NIH and AHRQ encourage applicants to refine and strengthen all application submissions.
