Welcome to the Office of Sponsored Projects and Research at Keene State College!
The mission of OSPR is to assist our campus constituents as they distinguish themselves through their scholarly efforts, and to contribute to the intellectual vibrancy of the campus and community.
Feed your passion! External grants support our College mission by providing resources you as a faculty member need to pursue the interesting questions and problems that led you to a life in the academe–all while introducing your students to the power of scholarly work in pursuit of a better society.
The Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) has long encouraged providing more faculty-mentored research opportunities to students because of the deep learning that occurs in that context. Research and creative endeavors are powerful components of a liberal arts education.Complete Pre-Award Support Information
