What are Limited Submission Opportunities?

Limited submission programs restrict the number of proposals, applications or nominations an institution can submit to a funding agency.

These programs require institutions to conduct an internal solicitation and review process in which deans and directors of organized research units (ORU) nominate pre-proposals for internal review. A review committee chooses the proposal(s) that will go to the funding agency.

Announcements about Limited Submissions

Office of Research Development (ORD) notifies faculty members about limited submission opportunities in two ways:

  1. Calendar of limited submission opportunities
    ORD maintains a calendar of limited submission opportunities via the campus online competition management system. (See "Go to InfoReady Review" at the top of this page.) This calendar is not exhaustive; it includes only opportunities most likely to be of interest to investigators at UC Merced.
  2. Email announcements
    ORD also sends email for the announcement of newly opened internal limited submission competitions.

How to Apply for a Limited Submission Opportunity
