The Sponsored Programs Office is dedicated to assisting faculty and staff with pre-award and early-stage post-award activities for externally funded research, scholarship and student success programs. SPO staff work closely with sponsoring agencies, Principal Investigators (PIs), and the University Corporation at Monterey Bay to provide professional and timely assistance and direction.

Sponsored Programs Office staff are also the administrative arm and operational support for the Committee for the Protection of Human Subjects (CPHS), for the Faculty Incentive Grants (FIG) and CSU Student Research Competition (SRC).
