SLAC Internal Down-Select Process and Due Dates

A proposal down-select process becomes necessary when the sponsor limits the number of submissions made by an institution.  This process can also be triggered when SLAC management requires internal vetting of proposals before submission.  The following table summarizes current funding opportunities that are subject to a SLAC internal down-select process and the respective SLAC due dates.

The SLAC down-select process is facilitated by Charlotte Chang on behalf of the Chief Research Officer and the Laboratory Director.  Please contact for any questions.
