Closed Funding Opportunities

IdeaLab Seed Funding (2022-2023) of $5,000 has been secured to initiate and support new, collaborative relationships across Penn State. "IdeaLabs" bring together individuals from different disciplines to interact in an intensive way, learn from one another, create an integrated vision for future research projects at the intersection of law, policy, and engineering, and identify funding opportunities for such projects.



The Law, Policy, and Engineering (LPE) initiative is an interdisciplinary academic and research initiative between Penn State's College of Engineering, Penn State Law, and Penn State's School of International Affairs. The initiative will provide a transformative educational experience for students by actively integrating components of all three disciplines into the curriculum to prepare students for the competitive, interdisciplinary, global workplaces of the future.
