Limited Submission Opportunities

From time to time, a funding opportunity may arise that limits the number of proposals that a single institution may submit. The Office of Sponsored Programs (OSP) attempts to identify all limited submission opportunities of interest to the University community and coordinates the submission process with the colleges. A number of opportunities are announced in the table below and through OSP’s funding listserv, although this list should not be considered exhaustive. Interested applicants are advised to read OSP’s Guidance Document on Limited Submission Opportunities and not to begin work on proposals until notified that the review process has been completed.
