Matching the individual needs of faculty and staff conducting research at John Jay with prospective funding sources is the responsibility of the College’s Office of Special Programs (OSP). The OSP assists in all pre-award activities, as well as in the actual preparation of grant proposals and budget, and in the submission process. Working closely with the Dean of Research, it sets an aggressive research agenda that incorporates a focused plan for the pursuit of external funding. A number of online databases and reference materials, including the Community of Science system, are applied towards this goal.
The OSP is located in Haaren Hall, Room 632B. Executive Director Jacob T. Marini is assisted by Deputy Director Susy Mendes and by Cherryanne Ward, a full-time Grants Management Specialist.
