Limited submissions

In addition, this office also conducts internal competitive reviews to select proposals for submission when solicitations have restrictions on the number of submissions and on eligibility requirements. These solicitations are referred to as “limited submission” opportunities and may require internal coordination across schools, colleges and disciplines within the university. The limited submissions website has details on opportunities, procedures, and guidelines for these solicitations.
