How to Use this Si​te​

The DSP website is designed around the basic steps in sponsored projects, offering guidance and resources for finding funding sources; for preparing, approving, and submitting applications; for receiving, accepting, and processing awards; and for administering awards to the project's completion and close-out -- all in compliance with governmental, university, and sponsor policies and procedures. 

The primary menu along the left side of each page will, we hope, direct you to a starting point, to the broad process or resource you're needing, under which you'll find detailed information on particular, related subjects.

The following tools, located in the upper right bar of each page, are also available to help you navigate this site and locate information as quickly and easily as possible: 

Finally, along the top banner you'll find a text box with the option to search the DSP site, the Office of the Vice President for Research site, or the University's overall site by keyword.

If unable to find the information you're needing, please don't hesitate to contact the DSP's main office, e-mailing dsp@uiowa.edu or phoning 335-2123.
