Office of Research & Scholarship
New knowledge for practical application is the Fielding difference.
The Office of Research and Scholarship, under the Office of the Provost, leads research efforts at Fielding Graduate University. Faculty, students, and alumni work with this office to develop, promote, and fund their research.
The Office of Research & Scholarship encompasses the institution’s Office of Sponsored Programs, Institutional Review Board (IRB), Library, and Writing Support Services. It works in conjunction with academic programs and administrative offices to help facilitate student research training and support the doctoral dissertation research process.
The Office of Research & Scholarship also provides opportunities for students to prepare and present their research through institutional poster sessions and funds for external research presentations.
The Office of Sponsored Programs provides technical grant writing support to faculty and students to prepare and submit proposals to governmental agencies and foundations to fund the scholarly and programmatic interests of the institution, and of its faculty, students, and alumni. It also helps faculty manage external grants, and serves as a liaison with federal agencies and associations related to Fielding’s mission, vision, and academic programs.
Through the Office of Sponsored Programs, support for faculty research includes the institution’s internal research grants program designed to provide seed funding for developing research projects that can attract external funding. Faculty who receive awards through this program receive targeted assistance to find external funding opportunities and develop their projects into grant proposals.
