ComArtSci Office for Research (O4R)

The Office for Research (O4R) assists faculty across the College of Communication Arts and Sciences in preparing grant applications to external and internal funding agencies (federal, state, foundations, private companies, university sources, etc.) and supports the research interests and activities of the faculty and students of the College.

The research support provided consists of budget development, interpreting the Request for Proposal (RFP), completing essential forms, obtaining University Authorized Official sign offs, proposal submission via System-to-System (S2S) electronic application processes. O4R research administrators will serve as liaisons with MSU’s Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP), Contract & Grant Administration (CGA), subcontracted sites, other MSU departments, and the funding agency.
