Office of Grants and Sponsored Programs

The Office of Grants and Sponsored Programs at Kentucky State University coordinates research, grants, and sponsored programs on a university-wide basis. The mission is to enhance the environment for research, public service, and outreach activities at the university; to encourage and facilitate external funding; and to support the University’s pursuit of excellence in delivery of high-quality academic services and production of graduates who are global citizens.

The staff assists with pre-award functions to include identification of funding opportunities, proposal development, and adherence to submission guidelines dictated by the sponsoring agency. The Office of Grants and Sponsored Programs also supports university researchers in post-award grant administration by reviewing and executing award documents and contractual agreements, managing budget set-up, monitoring grant expenditures to ensure adherence to Office of Management and Budget Uniform Guidance, and ensuring the timely submission of required technical and financial reports when applicable.
