UW-Stout's Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) offers support to students, faculty, and staff in their research endeavors. We celebrate research every day across our campus in each of our colleges and are proud of our ever-growing researcher population.

Services for Students 

  • Grants: We offer a grant program to help cover the cost of conducting and disseminating the results of your research.
  • IRB: We can help you understand how to successfully navigate the Institutional Review Board (IRB) process to conduct research involving people.
  • Student Research Events: From national events like the National Conference for Undergraduate Research to UW system events like Research in the Rotunda and the Symposium to campus events like Research Day, we offer opportunities to showcase your discoveries.
  • Journal of Student Research: Every year we publish the UW-Stout Journal of Student Research (JSR) that allows you to publish your work.
