The USC Office of Research Advancement, formed in 2006, is a service resource for USC that strategically pursues competitive federal funding opportunities with a targeted focus on large, multidisciplinary research endeavors.

With staff located in both Los Angeles, CA, and Washington, DC, the office provides a wide variety of support services for faculty across the university, from proposal conception to post-submission support. These services include serving as a liaison between the federal funding agencies and faculty, providing proposal preparation assistance, supporting the Vice President of Research and Office of Research, and participating in university-wide research administration and faculty engagement activities.
