Limited Submissions

Limited Submissions


For all active (open) limited submission competitions see the USA InfoReady site.  

Some grant and fellowship programs limit the number of proposals that may be submitted by an institution (and/or PI). If you want to apply for a limited submission opportunity that is not listed on the InfoReady site, please contact Research Communications, Development and Learning (RCDL), 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 USA for that opportunity, will very likely be rejected without review. To prevent miscommunication in relation to limited submission eligibility, 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.
