Office of Sponsored Programs

The Role of Sponsored Programs

LeTourneau University's Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) has coordinated more than 100 projects using the resources, facilities and expertise of university faculty, staff and students to solve challenges for industries, businesses, educational institutions and government agencies.

Through mutually beneficial arrangements, the university and its sponsors have completed projects in biomechanical research, design of industrial products and processes, creation of new welding procedures, marketing studies and business plan development.

The OSP seeks to partner with corporations and clients to give our highly qualified students "hands-on" experience in the fields related to their chosen careers, while providing cost-effective solutions to industry and business.


The Spirit of Ingenuity is what sets LeTourneau University apart.

We're not content to simply teach what others have discovered. LeTourneau University's faculty and staff work together to bring real world research and development challenges to the campus. The benefits are many:

  • The University locates funds for student support, equipment and facilities.
  • Faculty members are challenged by exposure to significant projects and contacts with R&D professionals.
  • Students have "hands-on" experience in fields related to their chosen careers.
