Limited Submission Awards and Grants

Foundations and federal agencies occasionally limit the number of applications or nominations an institution may submit for a specific funding program. When a call for proposals is "limited" the Office of Research Development (ORD) sends out a call for interest to the University Community. If more than the "limit" express interest, ORD uses an internal selection process to determine which application(s) will be submitted to the sponsor for funding consideration.

The Limited Submission Opportunities are listed below along with the internal deadlines. Those interested in a particular program must notify ORD by the internal deadline indicated by email to Michelle Wonsey.  

ORD and the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations make every attempt to identify Limited Submissions Opportunities and provide information on them to the University Community in a timely manner. If you have identified a Limited Submission Opportunity that is not posted on the list below please email Michelle Wonsey as soon as possible.
