Services We Offer

The office of the Associate Dean for Research seeks to minimize pre-award barriers to proposal submission. COSSPP grants analyst Laura Kitchens helps faculty prepare proposal applications. Assistance is available for help with common tasks such as budget development, coordinating with FSU’s Sponsored Research Administration and ensuring proposal compliance for submission.

Moreover, COSSPP sponsors programming and training activities geared toward faculty development and offers seed funding programs to enhance faculty research. Over $40,000 in research support funding has been awarded by COSSPP since 2019.
