Phase II grants are for the continuation of the research initiated in Phase I and that are likely to result in commercially viable products or processes. Only Phase I awardees are eligible to apply for Phase II support; STTR Phase I grants (normally of 1-year duration) are to determine the scientific, technical, and commercial merit and feasibility of the proposed cooperative effort that has potential for commercial application and the quality of performance of the small business concerns.
