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 or if you would like to receive a weekly digest of open limited submission opportunities.

Currently Accepting Notices of Intent/Proposals
