Training Opportunities

The Harvard University Research Administration Community supports its Research Administrators in the pursuit of professional development, and in ongoing personal development. Please see Harvard’s Basic Sponsored Administration Training Guidelines if you are wondering what courses to take. 

Overview of Sponsored Programs Administration

The University Research Administration Training Team (URATT) has developed a series of courses designed to cover basic information about the world of research administration at Harvard. This course series begins with the Overview of Sponsored Projects Administration course, which is offered on a regular basis throughout the year.

Online Courses

The basic information covered in the Overview of Sponsored Projects Administration course is complemented by a sequence of online courses, covering a variety of basic research administration topics as well as policy overviews. We also offer an online module specifically designed for Faculty and Researchers.
