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. Additionally, we work closely with WCL's Office of Finance and Administration.

WCL's Grant and Contract Manager, Irina Komives, and staff from Grants and Programs are available every Wednesday 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 lead faculty and staff through the grantseeking process and includes the following:
