The Sponsored Programs Office (SPO) assists Ball State University personnel in the quest for external funding to carry out their research, creative, and scholarly activities.

Support includes identifying potential funding opportunities, guidance in proposal and budget development, and submission of applications to funding agencies. SPO offers workshops in proposal preparation and coordinates internal funding through Aspire Internal Grants and the Advance Proposal Development Program.

SPO staff will refer researchers to the Office of Research Integrity for IRB and other protocol committee considerations and to the Ball State Innovation Corporation when there is potential for the creation of intellectual property.
