Welcome to OSP

Missouri University of Science and Technology (Missouri S&T) is committed to providing an inclusive environment that fosters creativity, innovation and an entrepreneurial spirit - from ground-breaking research to modes of learning to sustainable and ethical business practices. I am so pleased to be part of the exciting changes and progress being made to expand and elevate Missouri S&T’s research performance and reputation.

I invite you to navigate through our website to learn more about the research being conducted at Missouri S&T.  Resources are also provided to help faculty, staff, students and sponsors with their needs.  The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP), which includes the Office of Vice Provost for Research (OVPR), and research centers and the Office of the Technology Transfer and Economic Development that reside under the VPR will foster innovation, promote scholarship, creative works, technology transfer and economic development, provide access to specialized equipment, and promote education and training of students to conduct cutting-edge interdisciplinary research.  OSP will also enhance and facilitate research and external funding by providing support services, in a timely and professional manner, to faculty, staff, students and research investors involved with sponsored program activities.
