Award Management

The Research Institute provides award administration support and program/project management services for faculty and staff conducting externally funding projects.

Each college and campus unit has been assigned a grant and contract specialist to serve as their single point of award administration. Your grant and contract specialist can assist you with establishing a Sponsored Project Account; hiring project staff, graduate assistants, and undergraduate student workers; purchasing materials and supplies; processing subawards, consulting agreements, and other procurements; scheduling project deliverables and reports; processing change orders, no-cost extensions, and budget modifications; closing out your award; and managing all of your sponsored research regulatory compliance requirements.

Whether you are a first-time funding recipient or an experienced principal investigator, we encourage you contact your cognizant grant and contract specialist as soon as you learn of your award.


IUP Research Institute staff are available to assist IUP Researchers with finding, applying for, securing, and managing externally funded projects.
