Office of Research Services (ORS)
The Office of Research Services at Coastal Carolina University assists faculty and staff with preparation and submission of proposals and provides faculty with information on grant and funding opportunities. It is our goal to create increased faculty interest in grants to support research, training, and public service opportunities.
A major responsibility of our department is to ensure compliance with all federal and state regulations pertinent to grant eligibility and transactions.
ORS also works with the University administration and the Office of Philanthropy on preparation and proposals supporting the institution.
