Working at the Smithsonian

Office of Sponsored Projects
  • An important portion of the Smithsonian’s revenues come in the form of grants and contracts from foundations, federal and state government agencies, corporations and occasionally international sources to fund specific research, exhibitions, educational programming and other mission critical projects.
  • OSP provides the Smithsonian community with administrative, and financial services to support these important resources. The services include identification of external funding sources, proposal development and preparation, negotiations, the administration and financial management of externally funded projects and performance measurement, analysis and reporting. Staff members have expertise in grant and contract administration and financial analysis.
