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).

Notice of Intents and pre-proposals (if required) will be due to proposals.vpr@ttu.edu by 11:59 p.m. on the deadline identified on the table below.
