Limited Submission Guidelines

Some external funders and fellowship programs allow only one submittal per institution per year. Therefore, it is incumbent upon each institution to resolve its own internal nomination policy, especially when more than one faculty member  or student wishes to apply.

The Provost’s Office of Academic Affairs is the designated nominator for PSU’s external limited submission programs, and is required to make nominations as needed using the following procedure:

1)     All proposals for external limited submission programs come to the Office of Sponsored Programs (Must be received 30 days prior to funder deadline).

*OSP requires all participants to submit a pre-proposal including:

  • introduction, statement of work, expected outcomes, key personnel, etc. (two page max)
  • a rough budget (estimated salary, fringe, tuition, equipment, supplies, indirect costs, etc.)
  • a recent CV
  • any cost sharing requirements and/or leverage opportunities
