Limited Submissions

At Penn State College of Medicine/Hershey Medical Center, Research Development is responsible for identifying the grant applications that may be submitted to research sponsors who limit the number of applications they will consider from an institution. Investigators who would like to apply to a "Limited Submission" grant program should notify Research Development of their interest ASAP (717-531-6949; It is important that the institution comply with these limited submission requirements as some sponsors will refuse to consider any applications from the institution if more than the allowed number are submitted.  Please see Penn State University policy and Penn State College of Medicine policy for additional information.
