The Youngstown State University Office of Research Services assists faculty and staff in obtaining and managing funding. We process all applications for funding and are the official contact with funding agencies for the life of each grant project. The Office oversees all compliance issues related to human and animal studies, and is responsible for research integrity, intellectual property, and other activities associated with external support.       


The Office of Research Services also provides the following services:

  • Review and submission of proposals
  • Grant award and agreement negotiation and acceptance
  • Post-award modifications (e.g., budget redistributions, no-cost extension, etc.)
  • Trainings (e.g., grant writing workshops, electronic routing, etc.)

More information can be found in the Resources Section on the Research Services Penguin Portal page.


The Office of Research Services staff are committed to providing services and support to help faculty, staff, and students. Contact us at research@ysu.edu, schedule through their Bookings Page or reach out to them individually through the contact information listed here.
