Limited Submissions

About Limited Submissions

When a program announcement limits the number of proposals that an institution may submit, the University must take steps to ensure that we do not exceed that limit. As new limited funding opportunities are released, they are added to the list below. They are also distributed to campus via the ORSP-GEN-INFO-L listserv weekly. If you are interested in submitting a proposal to one of these opportunities, follow the instructions for how to submit an internal statement of intent. 

Internal statements of intent are evaluated by the Vice President for Research (VPR). Others may be included at the VPR's discretion, including chairs or deans, particularly if there are multiple submissions from a single department. All individuals submitting internal statements of intent will be notified via email whether or not their project was selected to advance to the proposal stage.
