There are two funding cycles each year with applications due the first part of May and September. Specific deadlines will be announced. The first step is a pre-proposal submission which is evaluated by the Technology Development Fund Screening Committee. Within two weeks, the Screening Committee chooses a subset of the applications for a full proposal submission and an oral presentation which are due and scheduled approximately 2 and 4 weeks after notification for submission, respectively. After oral presentations, the Screening Committee identifies those projects deemed best to satisfy the commercialization criteria for review and, with the Executive Committee, grants the awards. Best efforts will be made to announce awards by the end of June and December.
Please send completed application to the Fund Manager.
