Office of Research and Grants Administration
The Office of Research and Grants Administration (ORGA) is the college's central clearinghouse for all external research and programmatic grants and contracts with government agencies and private foundations.
ORGA supports faculty and student advancement of knowledge and scholarship across the disciplines. RIC faculty research creates student opportunities, positively affects issues that reach far beyond our campus, and generates revenue for the college and State of Rhode Island.
RIC faculty and staff generated $9.7 million in grant and contract revenue in fiscal year 2015, representing a million dollar increase in awards from fiscal year 2014. Fifty-one principal investigators received awards and 108 proposals were submitted.
ORGA is proud to support the many individuals and partnerships working to encourage and promote student-faculty research at RIC.
