Office of Sponsored Research

The Sponsored Research Office (SRO) sits between faculty researchers and funders, or “sponsors”. The largest sponsor of externally funded programs at Bowdoin is the federal government. SRO works with a grants team with representatives from Academic Affairs, the Controller’s Office, and the Treasurer’s Office to ensure that faculty can do their research and that sponsors have the timely and adequate stewardship for the funding that they provide. Each federal agency has unique regulations. Increased breadth, number, and diversity of these regulations, the addition of administrative regulations and the increased volume of proposals from faculty were the catalyst for the creation of Sponsored Research Programs at Bowdoin College. In addition, the SRO Director will serve as a resource for faculty and staff that serve on Bowdoin’s Institutional Review Board (IRB) and Institutional Animal Care Use Committee/Institutional Biosafety Committee (IACUC/IBC).
