If you are interested in submitting a proposal for external funding, please complete and submit the Notification of Intent to Submit form to notify Sponsored Projects Administration (SPA) staff of your intention to develop a proposal. SPA staff provide support and guidance to faculty and staff during the proposal development process and are the only employees authorized to submit proposals on behalf of PSU. Please send the notification as soon as an opportunity is identified, whether or not it is in response to a formal solicitation, so SPA can assign staff to support you. Please note: SPA must be notified at least two weeks prior to the submission deadline.

LIMITED SUBMISSION OPPORTUNITIES
A "limited submission" solicitation is a funding opportunity announcement in which the sponsor restricts the number of applications or proposals an institution is allowed to submit. For these funding opportunities, Research & Graduate Studies (RGS) manages an internal proposal submission, review, and selection process for PSU proposals. We strive to ensure transparency and fairness in these internal competitions with a process that does not overburden either the researcher or the reviewers. New opportunities and their requirements are communicated monthly from email@example.com to the PSU PI email list
The funding opportunities listed require an internal review. All interested PIs must submit their abstracts, CVs, and a letter of support from their dean to firstname.lastname@example.org by the posted internal deadline. Click on the name of the funding opportunity announcement link for more information. If you have any questions, please contact Sponsored Projects Administration's Grants and Agreements Intake Coordinator: 5-8025 or email@example.com.
Please note that all opportunities from a private funding source require clearance from the PSU Foundation prior to submission
