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.

All current downselect applications are provided in the InfoReady system, at psu.infoready4.com. You may also click on the titles below to apply for limited submission awards that are currently in downselect.
