About Us

The Indiana Forum for Research Administration is a non-profit organization whose membership consists of individuals who work within the field of research administration.  It is open to anyone interested in sponsored programs:  pre-award, post-award, compliance, development, departmental and central office.   

Each fall IFRA holds a regional conference.  The conference is an excellent opportunity for members to get together to discuss topics of interest, hear the latest information from local, state and national speakers, and to network with their peers from Indiana and the surrounding states.

IFRA offers an inexpensive opportunity to participate in networking, training, and developing professional skills.  See the Annual Meeting page for more details.
