Our Programs


External Funding

In thinking about how you are going to obtain a grant or how to handle a research or creative project, there are a number of factors to consider. The Office of Sponsored Programs and Faculty Development (OSPFD) can guide you through these considerations.

Faculty Development

The UW Oshkosh Faculty Development Program includes a variety of programs to support a broad range of research, teaching and other professional development activities. The program consists of ten components listed below. All components require a proposal from a faculty or academic staff member and all proposals (with the exception of Small Grants) are recommended or not recommended for funding to the Provost and Vice Chancellor by the Faculty Development Board.
