Office of Research and Grants

The Office of Research and Grants (ORG) promotes, supports, and celebrates research and grant opportunities to advance the Scholarship Cornerstone of Azusa Pacific University. Research is celebrated through regular faculty luncheon presentations, a newsletter citing significant faculty scholarly activities, and a quarterly Cornerstone publication that highlights recent research and grants accomplishments of APU faculty. ORG promotes faculty research by hosting faculty writers’ retreats each year, and by assisting faculty with identifying external funding sources, reviewing application drafts, processing grant proposals through APU’s routing system to get endorsements from campus stakeholders, and submitting completed grant applications to prospective funding sources. ORG also assists faculty in administering and managing sponsored grant awards.

The Office of Research and Grants also awards graduate student travel grants, which are internal grants to support graduate students who intend to present their research at professional conferences. Applications are available on the APU website and can also be obtained by contacting the office.
