Grantseeking Resources (click here for Post-award support)

The Office of Grants & Programs works closely with the Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) and the Grants and Contracts Accounting Office (GCA) on main campus to provide pre-award, contractual, and post-award support. AU's Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) assists American University faculty and staff with all pre-award and contractual support. Services include suggesting suitable funding sources, providing AU supplemental data, developing budgets, submitting proposals, and accepting and setting-up awards.

WCL's Grant and Contract Manager, Irina Komives, and staff from Grants and Programs are available every Tuesday morning to meet in person to discuss pre- and post-award grant-related issues. We can be contacted by sending an e-mail to or by calling our offices.

OSP's web page includes a Proposal Guide and related FAQs that leads faculty and staff through the grantseeking process and includes the following:
