Granting agencies may impose a limit on the number of proposals submitted by an institution to a funding opportunity. In these cases, the office of the Vice Provost for Research and Economic Development (VPRED) will be responsible for selecting proposals for submission. Selection may be made through a preliminary proposal competition (for details, see Academic Policy Series 1535.10). A sampling of limited submission programs are listed below.
Direct questions and comments related to limited submissions to the Associate Vice Provost for Research and Economic Development (AVPRED).

For limited submissions not on the table
If you are interested in a solicitation that limits the number of campus submissions, please contact the Director of Research and Sponsored Programs. By Academic Policy Series 1535.10, RSSP needs to determine the number of possible submissions and determine which proposal(s) are to be submitted. This step may seem to be generating competition for your proposal but it is in your best interest. It is better to find out early if there are other potential proposals before you expend significant effort to write a complete proposal. It also identifies potential collaborations between two different proposal teams.
