Limited Submissions

Limited Submissions

 

Some grant and fellowship programs limit the number of proposals that may be submitted by an institution (and/or PI). Please refer to the USA InfoReady Review site for all active (open) limited submission competitions.  

If you want to apply for a limited submission opportunity that is not listed on the InfoReady Review site, please contact Kim Littlefield, Ph.D., for guidance about obtaining institutional nomination before developing an application for submission. Note: if you submit a proposal to a limited submission program without institutional nomination and the institutional limit is exceeded, your proposal, and other proposals submitted from the USA for that opportunity, will very likely be rejected without review. To prevent miscommunication in relation to limited submission eligibility, the USA Office of RCDL coordinates internal limited submission competitions and institutional nominee selection.

Submission - eligible, institutional nominees for various limited submission opportunities are listed below.  The Office of Research and Economic Development issues a Limited Submission Institutional Nomination Memo to a designated institutional nominee.  The nomination memo should be uploaded into the Representations and Certifications section of Cayuse SP and route with proposal documentation to certify institutional approval to submit a limited submission proposal.  Proposals routed for a limited submission opportunity without an Institutional Nomination Memo may be returned without submission.
