Sponsored Programs Administration

Our mission is to provide exceptional support to NIU faculty, students, and staff in securing and managing sponsored funding for research, instruction, service, and artistry activities. We strive to provide comprehensive services and support from funding development to project closeout. We are committed to facilitating external funding endeavors while maintaining compliance for sponsored programs at NIU.

Seminar Series

The Grants Administration and Management Series covers a variety of topics relevant to campus administrators who interact with SPA on grant related matters (e.g. completing HR paperwork, purchasing, submitting project changes or monitoring budgets).

This year's PI Academy Professional Development Series includes a broad range of topics from grant writing to the art of science communications.
