Limited Submissions

 

The Penn State Limited Submission Program manages the response to research funding opportunities for which a limited number of submissions are permitted from Penn State.

The Vice President for Research (VPR), in close communication with the college research deans and interdisciplinary consortia directors, is charged with implementing the Penn State Limited Submission Procedure.

Please contact limitedsubs@psu.edu should you have any questions.

Currently in Downselect

Penn State may only submit a specific number of proposals to these funding opportunities. The number of NOIs received require that an internal competition take place, thus, a downselect process has commenced. No Penn State researchers may apply to any opportunity listed on this page outside of this downselect process.
