Without question, we recognize the impact that research has on society. The New School's contributions are significant, and strong support for sponsored research activity and creative innovation of our faculty are key to our success.  Support of research takes a team of experts.

The process of finding funding, creating proposals, effectively submitting a proposal, managing an awarded project and closing out the project in a manner that furthers the research as well as reconciling the financial books and compliance milestones takes keen support acumen and expertise.

These documents and guides attempt to bring some of these resources to the fingertips of those doing this important work. While faculty researchers focus on the science, those in research administration help ensure the other business processes are met, whether it be proposal submission, managing project milestones, compliance reporting, or financials.  

The Office of Research Support (ORS) is the central resource and expert partner on research administration providing support and oversight of sponsored projects. ORS represents The New School as the institutional official for proposal submission and award acceptance ensuring compliance with federal regulations, sponsor requirements and University policies. For more information regarding the ORS please click here or visit the Provost's Office page in the About Us section. 

Please see our “How do I….” guidance document here.

If you have any questions, contact one of the ORS Team members at for additional help.
