Our mission is to guide faculty through the grant-seeking process by helping to identify funding sources and by assisting in the planning and preparation of proposals for external support. We also aim to promote research at both the undergraduate and the graduate level by providing information on funding opportunities, research organizations, and project openings.

The benefits of scholarship and research at an institution such as La Sierra University are twofold. First is the creation of new knowledge which, through its application, can enrich the quality of life. Second, the students who participate in the endeavor receive a unique type of education. Many students who have this opportunity go on to become primary contributors themselves.

The La Sierra University Office of Sponsored Projects Administration provides services to the University research and education community in the following areas:

  • Reviews proposals; negotiates awards; and administers agreements for scholarly research, education, and training programs, assuring compliance with all applicable sponsor regulations and University policies and procedures.
  • Notifies and updates the University community about funding opportunities as well as sponsor policies and application guidelines.
  • Maintains a database of information about sponsored project proposals and awards.
