Research and Sponsored Programs

The research mission of TWU is supported in multiple ways through the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs. Through research grants and contracts, as well as other sponsored programs such as training grants and community service projects, TWU provides new information for the benefit of our society, encourages faculty scholarship, and provides support and training. Additional support and training for faculty and students are provided by the Center for Student Research and the Center for Research Design and Analysis. Services available to support research include proposal preparation and submission assistance; grant management for internal and external grants; coordination of internal grants and competitions; coordination of the Institutional Review Board, Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee, and Institutional Biosafety Committee; intellectual property, funding searches; and scientific equipment repair.

External support for research and sponsored programs comes from various private, state, and federal funding sources. Federal funding is received from agencies such as the National Institutes of Health, Health Resources and Services Administration, Administration for Children and Families, U.S. Institute of Peace, Veterans Affairs, National Science Foundation, U.S. Department of Education, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. State agencies such as the State of Texas, Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, Texas Education Agency, and Joint Admission Medical Program Council also provide funding for research and sponsored programs at the University.

Assistance and information about research and sponsored programs are available from the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs. Detailed information is also available through the department’s pages on the University’s homepage through the Research link.
