Available Training

The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP), Controller's Office, and Finance: Grants and Contracts (FGC) Office have designed a training program to ensure that research administrators have access to information that will provide them with a foundation of knowledge to assist them in understanding how to appropriately administer sponsored programs at Emory Univesity. These offices provide a variety of educational opportunities related to sponsored program administration with the mission to support and enhance the administrative processes, both internally and externally, for proposals and awards. The courses offer guidance on the rules and regulations governing compliance with federal, University, and contractual sponsor requirements.

Emory uses an online system to manage both its instructor-led and online courses.
