Limited Submissions

Where can I find information on limited submission programs?
The Division of Research tracks the limited submission programs, and posts them on this web site with their corresponding internal and agency deadlines as well as specific information on the necessary internal application procedures. The Division of Research makes every effort to track limited submission solicitations. However, if you are interested in applying to a limited solicitation that is not listed on our site, please contact Camille Coley, Director for Research Development, immediately for guidance.

How are limited submission proposals selected?
Final proposal selections are made by the office of the Vice President for Research based on merit and broader benefits to the University community. If the number of potential internal applicants exceeds program limits, the Office of the Vice President for Research, following the Limited Submissions Policy, coordinates an impartial internal review to select the most competitive proposals for submission to the external funding agency. These reviews are conducted by members of the Limited Submission Review Advisory Committee, which makes recommendations to the Vice President for Research. The Limited Submission Review Advisory Committee is comprised of experienced faculty researchers from across the University community who are selected based on recommendations from College Administration and the Faculty Senate.
