Sponsored Project Guidelines

A sponsored project is an initiative funded through an external source including private corporations, small businesses, nonprofit organizations, other academic institutions, foundations, venture philanthropists, entrepreneurs, researchers, investors, or federal, state, and local government agencies.

Faculty, staff, departments, and programs are encouraged to integrate sponsored project activity where it is feasible, practical, and contributes to the educational objectives of their programs or the college.
