Rutgers Newark Research

Research Office

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) at Rutgers University-Newark (RU-N) provides support to faculty, students, and staff. It works to secure external funding for their research, service, and outreach projects and academic programs.


Our vision is to enable the RU-N Community to compete effectively for extramural support, enhance external funding and research profiles of every member of the RU-N Community, and foster multi-disciplinary research projects and diverse programming.

Our mission is to partner with our world-class RU-N community members to help achieve ambitious externally funded research, community outreach and creative agendas by providing first-rate expertise throughout the proposal/grant life cycle, including proposal development, budget creation and review, facilitation of required compliance, and negotiations of grants, contracts, and cooperative agreements.
