Dr. HensonWelcome to the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs 

Our mission is to provide the best possible support for the faculty, staff and students of Morehead State University in their pursuit of funding for research, other scholarly and creative activities, instruction, and public service. In order to achieve this, our office is organized around three important functions:   

Pre-Award Administration – The Pre-Award Team, under the direction of Ms. Darlene Allen, handles all aspects of proposal development, from identifying funding sources to electronic proposal submission; including budget development/modification, information on specific funding entities, training for new investigators, and more.

Post Award Administration – The Post-Award Team, led by Dr. Shannon Harr, is responsible for duties related to post-award work, including award notifications, contract review, and facilitating account set up with the Office of Accounting and Fiscal Services. Additionally, the team handles research compliance issues ranging from the use of human and animal subjects to contract review; including oversight of state and federal regulations compliance, research ethics, memoranda of agreement, intellectual property, contract negotiations, etc.

Research Enhancement – We are also pleased to provide leadership in providing a variety of resources (internal research funding, release time, undergraduate research fellowships, the annual Celebration of Student Scholarship, etc.) to faculty, staff and students to enhance and improve our institutional research infrastructure and capacity.

Our staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and eager to assist in the quest for external funding. I encourage our MSU family to take full advantage of the many services provided by our office.

With best wishes for your future funding success,
