Welcome to the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) is Marquette University's central point of coordination for sponsored projects and the legally authorized representative for grants, contracts and assurances. ORSP represents the sum of Marquette's experience with extramural sponsors and partners over time, through the entire Project Lifecycle. ORSP helps faculty and staff build bridges between Marquette and extramural sponsors and other institutions to advance the university's mission, and it fosters excellence in sponsored projects by promoting best practices, policies and procedures that ensure consistency and efficiency in our transactions with sponsors and partners.


    • A project lifecycle is primarily comprised of three phases: PreawardAwardPostaward.  Links with additional information and resources are listed in the table below.
