Adelphi is committed to promoting, encouraging and supporting our faculty’s research endeavors and creative pursuits.

One way we do this is by dedicating an office solely for this mission. Our Research and Sponsored Programs team is an expert resource for finding and managing grants and other funding opportunities.

About Sponsored Research

Sponsored research, in general, refers to faculty research projects that receive funding from external sources. These include grants from local foundations to major awards from international organizations. Our office primarily helps faculty members and their research project teams find funding and manage aspects of their projects.

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs also holds an annual internal grant competition for full-time, tenure-track faculty members and offers international faculty development grants.

Research grants are highly competitive.
