Sponsored Programs Handbook

‌‌OSP is delighted to present the Sponsored Programs Handbook to the Montclair State University community. The handbook is intended to serve as a guide—a “go-to” living document for University faculty and staff when questions or curiosity about finding and applying for external funding might arise, or questions on award management might come up in the course of carrying out their funded projects.  As the sponsored programs environment is ever-changing, this handbook will be updated as federal and state laws, rules and regulations change, as well as University policies and procedures. Where further clarification is needed, members of the Montclair State University community should always feel free to contact OSP! We hope you find the handbook informative and useful, and encourage any and all feedback at
