On- Campus Resources

  • Division of Sponsored Programs (DSP): DSP provides a variety of services and support related to external funding for research and training for faculty from across campus. All activities related to external research funding, including applications, should be routed through DSP to ensure institutional compliance with the granting organization.

Institutional Memberships and Partnerships

As a faculty or staff member at Iowa, you can partake in the benefits available to individuals at member institutions, including lower cost of conference attendance and joining the CUGH listserv.
