Bloomsburg University's research and sponsored programs serves as the principal resource for faculty, staff and students seeking or managing funding for research and other creative activities.

Among its primary duties include assisting researchers in identifying funding and locating application forms and guidelines, reviewing funding literature and funding opportunities, as well as reviewing proposal budgets.

Additionally, the office aids faculty in the submission process. All proposal submissions that are not individual awards (fellowships, etc.) should be submitted to the funding agency by the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs, which will normally take care of obtaining signatures on proposals, copying, and mailing. For proposals to federal or state agencies with complex forms, the research office will prepare the forms from the project director's rough drafts.
