The Office of Sponsored Awards and Research Support (SARS) serves as a point of contact for faculty, staff and students who are seeking assistance with their research and scholarly endeavors at USC Upstate. Our Office provides training and development through the SARS Professional Development Workshop Series and Program Workdays. In addition, we provide resources and administrative support to help faculty develop their research, scholarship, and creative platforms here at USC Upstate. Opportunities offered through SARS make it easier for faculty to engage with students, each other, the community and their profession. Please refer to the SARS Calendar for all program dates and deadlines.
