Limited submission opportunities are grant or contract solicitations where funding agencies have restricted the number of proposals that a university may submit. These restrictions are usually described in the eligibility section of the funding opportunity announcement.
The University of Texas at El Paso has established procedures for the review and selection of applications for any funding opportunity that limits the number of pre-proposal or proposal submissions. This internal selection process is required to determine which proposal(s) will go forward. The limited submission competitive process is coordinated by the Office of Research & Sponsored Projects (ORSP).
ORSP tracks the limited submission programs and posts them to the Limited Submissions Table on this web page. Because the list is not comprehensive, investigators must notify ORSP if a funding opportunity with limited submission requirements is not listed in the Table by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the funding opportunity information program information. The Table provides limited submission requirements for opportunities that have announced submission dates.
NOTE: ORSP encourages planning and development of limited submission applications up to a year prior to submission. Since sponsor deadlines occur throughout the year and often do not have the same annual deadline or are not issued annually, the Limited Submission Table includes projected dates of expected future limited submission deadlines.
