Sponsored Programs

Department Overview

Sponsored Programs connects Swarthmore College and its faculty with government agencies, philanthropic institutions, and corporations that have a shared interest in the research, scholarly, and creativity activity of individual faculty members. We report to the Provost’s Office and work closely with departments across campus, including the Business Office, and research compliance committees to support faculty and to ensure that proposals and grants comply with the requirements of the funding agency, and accurately reflect the excellence of the work for which they advocate funding. Sponsored Programs seeks to achieve operational excellence that reflects the excellence of our faculty through capacity-building efforts funded through our NIH BRAD award.
