Sponsored Programs

Sponsored Programs at Elon University promotes and facilitates research and scholarly activities for faculty and administrative staff by helping them locate and secure external funding. The office encourages the inclusion of students in grant projects. Sponsored Programs provides a central source of information on major governmental agencies, foundations and corporations that support research, and pedagogical and creative activities.

Sponsored Programs provides assistance, from conceptual development and planning of proposals through implementation and administration of funded projects. More specifically, it assists in identifying potential extramural funding sources, developing proposal narratives and budgets, completing standardized application forms, assuring compliance with applicable federal and state regulations, negotiating grant awards and contracts, and providing administrative assistance for funded projects.
