SPaRC'Ed Application

Application Process

SPaRC'Ed annually solicits applications for participation in the SPaRC'Ed certification series. The SPaRC'Ed committee reviews and selects applicants based upon multiple factors, including their role in sponsored projects administration, their unit's degree of sponsored projects and research involvement, and the applicant's personal statement. Applications of all experience and knowledge levels are encouraged to apply.  SPaRC'Ed courses for the 2024-2025 program year will be offered in a hybrid environment, allowing for in-person and online participation.  To encourage quality discussion and networking opportunities with program participants and instructors, participants who live within a 60-mile radius of campus will be required to attend four courses in person during the program year.  

The application period for SPaRC'Ed 2024-2025 is now closed.  Please contact Kamil Tamimie ( if you have any questions.
