The ISBM supports both faculty members and doctoral (PhD) students in funding their B2B Research. Two ways to request funding are:
Research Proposal Funding - The expectation is that most principal investigators will be full-time faculty. The ISBM accepts proposals at any time during the year from faculty members.
Doctoral Awards Competition - PhD students may enter this annual competition in order to fund their research. This competition has an entry deadline of September 15th each year. Consideration is rarely given to proposals from PhD students at other times of the year.
Preliminary proposals should be attachments of one to three pages in length, double-spaced. Include with the proposal the vitae of all of the researchers on the project.
If funding is approved, the researcher will be notified of the amounts of funds the ISBM will provide and all researchers on the project will need to enter into and agreement with The Pennsylvania State University (ISBM) to receive funding.
