About Us


The mission of the Office of Sponsored Projects & Grants Administration (SPGA) is to facilitate funded research, projects and programs at Oregon Tech. The SPGA works with faculty and staff to develop and submit proposals for foundation, corporate and government funding. The broad services offered by the SPGA are encapsulated by three critical areas: stimulating new sponsored projects, consultation and administrative guidance, and management of proposal submission. The SPGA is the first stop for faculty and staff who wish to pursue external sources of funding. 


The SPGA is responsible for assisting faculty and staff with prospect research and proposal development for sponsored research, projects and programs. The SPGA serves as a resource for faculty who wish to pursue research as well as faculty and staff who wish to otherwise advance the university through funding-eligible projects and programs.
