Limited Submissions

Federal, State and private funding agencies occasionally limit the number of proposals and/or applications submitted by an organization in response to a given funding opportunity. As needed, the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) will initiate an internal limited submission competition in order to comply with this agency requirement. As with all proposals for sponsored projects, proposals for limited submission programs are not authorized to leave the university without review and approval of the Office of Research Services (ORS).

A Notice of Intent (NOI) and pre-proposal (if required) will be due to limitedsubs.vpr@ttu.edu by 5 p.m. on the deadline identified on the table below. Any NOIs or pre-proposals submitted after the deadline will not be accepted. (See Application Guidelines for information on NOI and pre-proposal requirements).

Unless an opportunity is explicitly marked "CLOSED, IN COMPETITION" or has a named PI(s) up to the agency limited amount, do not assume it is too late to apply just because the TTU internal deadline has passed. If the external agency deadline has not yet been reached, contact RDT and ORS to see if a submission is still possible.

Limited Submission Guidelines and Flowchart

There are grants, external awards, and other opportunities available on our Funding Resources page.
