Many SJSU faculty members seek funding from outside the University
for conducting specialized research and public service projects,
underwriting faculty conferences, purchasing equipment, or for other
discretionary activities. The SJSU Research Foundation provides the business
management infrastructure that supports faculty/sponsor relationships
in two general categories:
- Research grants and contracts funded
by government agencies, corporations, foundations, and other non-profit
For more information go to Developing
- Self-Supported Projects and Activities such as
seminars, conferences, and workshops; construction and renovation
projects. For more information go to Self-Supported
|Managing external funding can be a complex process
and varies considerably from agency to agency and donor to donor.
Regardless of the source of funding, the Research Foundation's pre- and post-award
services are designed to make it possible for you to focus on your
research, rather than on research administration.
The information in this portion of the website is designed to assist you throughout
the process of acquiring, managing,
and reporting on externally funded projects of all kinds.
