Research Project Administration Guide
The SJSU Research Foundation Project Administration Guide provides an overview of our services, outlines general requirements and responsibilities, and provides principal investigators and their staff with the information and tools needed to locate funding, develop and submit proposals, and successfully manage their externally funded projects and programs.
Sponsored programs are projects or activities funded by an external organization, such as a federal, state, county, or city organization.
Self-Support programs include a broad range of not-for-credit educational activities directed by SJSU faculty, administrators or the Research Foundation.
