About Us

Welcome to the Grants and Funded Research webpage of the Office of Research and Graduate Programs in the E. J. Ourso College of Business at LSU. Although business colleges in the past have not been accustomed to applying for and receiving grants, budget cuts at state levels make it increasingly important to attract grants from federal and state governments as well as funded research from industry to support research and PhD programs. This website provides information and resources regarding grants and contracts for the business school and other funded research opportunities.
