What is a Limited Submission?

Many federal, state and private funding agencies issue requests for proposals that limit the number of applications they will accept from an institution. Texas Tech University has established a process to identify limited submission opportunities and internally select applicants to submit full proposals in response to a particular program. The following policy is designed to support an equitable review process while preventing any submission disqualifications due to submissions from Texas Tech University beyond the allowed number.

Process

NOTE: A Notice of Intent (NOI) and internal proposal (if required) will be due to https://ttu.infoready4.com by 5:00 p.m. on the deadline (TTU Notice of Intent Deadline) identified on the Limited Submission webpage. Any NOIs or internal proposals submitted after the deadline will not be accepted.

Limited Submission Notices of Intent are now submitted through Competition Space. To submit your notice, go to https://ttu.infoready4.com and click on "Limited Submission Notice of Intent." Click the "Apply" button and login through the "Texas Tech University Login" option. You will use your eRaider login. Fill in the necessary information on the application form. Once your application is completed, click on "Submit."

NO Competition:

  1. Identify desired submission opportunity
  2. Submit NOI to ORD by TTU Notice of Intent Deadline
  3. If less NOIs submitted than required, ORD notifies PI to move forward with full proposal

Competition:

  1. Identify desired submission opportunity
  2. Submit NOI to ORD by TTU Notice of Intent Deadline
  3. If more NOIs submitted than requires, ORD notifies PI of requirements and due date of documents.
  4. Peer Review Team reviews and scores internal proposal.
  5. Highest score(s) allowed to proceed to full agency proposal

Disclaimer

Please note that you have been chosen to represent Texas Tech University. Therefore, it is your responsibility as PI to immediately notify us should your team not be able to submit the proposal within 1 month of the submission deadline. This then allows time for another team to represent TTU in submitting a proposal for this opportunity. Should your team not be in a position to fulfill the commitment and not notify VPR&I within the 1 month deadline, please be advised it may affect your chance in future limited submission competitions.

Internal Proposal Competition Format

Each PI will be notified of specifics for that limited submission funding opportunity; however, the internal proposal format generally includes:

  • Cover page (Title, PI/Co-PI Name(s), Department(s), email address(es), Key Participant(s)
  • 2-3 page proposal summary
  • Estimated budget (including cost sharing details if applicable) C.V.

Depending on the proposal, additional information/documents may be required. The PI will be notified of additional requirements if needed. These documents are then reviewed by an internal Peer Review Team with the highest scored proposal(s) approved to go forward to the sponsor. The names of selected PI(s) will be listed on the Limited Submissions website.

Office of Research Development

Limited Submission Not Listed on Website

The Office of Research Development Team & Communications (ORDC) identifies limited submission funding opportunities through internet searches, web services and historical opportunities. However, despite the best efforts of ORDC, not every funding opportunity may be identified.

Anyone who wishes to apply to a limited submission opportunity that is not posted on the Limited Submissions webpage should indicate this on their Notice of Intent application and provide a link to the program announcement in the text box provided on the Limited Submission Notice of Intent application form on the Competition Space website: https://ttu.infoready4.com/.

NOTE: Failure to follow these guidelines may result in disqualification of an applicant for the relevant grant competition.

Once notification is received, ORDC will review the guidelines, determine if the situation warrants an NOI or pre-proposal announcement, and if so, establish appropriate internal due dates and post the announcement to the Limited Submissions webpage for competition.

Partnerships for Innovation - Research Partnerships (PFI-RP Track)

3/7/22

7/13/22

An organization may not submit more than one (1) new or resubmitted PFI-RP proposal to a deadline of this solicitation.

The Research Partnerships (PFI-RP) track seeks to achieve the same goals as the PFI-TT track by supporting instead complex, multi-faceted technology development projects that are typically beyond the scope of a single researcher or institution and require a multi-organizational, interdisciplinary, synergistic collaboration. A PFI-RP project requires the creation of partnerships between academic researchers and third-party organizations such as industry, non-academic research organizations, federal laboratories, public or non-profit technology transfer organizations or other universities. Such partnerships are needed to conduct applied research on a stand-alone larger project toward commercialization and societal impact. In the absence of such synergistic partnership, the project's likelihood for success would be minimal.

NIH Director's Early Independence Awards (DP5 Clinical Trial Optional)

6/10/21

9/3/21

Each institution, as defined by having a unique DUNS number or NIH IPF number, may submit only up to two applications to this FOA. Awards will be for up to $250,000 in direct costs per year, plus applicable Facilities and Administrative (F&A) costs.

The project period is limited to five years.

The NIH Director's Early Independence Award provides an opportunity for exceptional junior scientists to accelerate their entry into an independent research career by forgoing the traditional post-doctoral training period. Though most newly graduated doctoral-level researchers would benefit from post-doctoral training, a small number of outstanding junior investigators are capable of launching directly into an independent research career. The Early Independence Award is intended for these select junior investigators who have already established a record of scientific innovation and research productivity and have demonstrated unusual scientific vision and maturity; typical post-doctoral training would unnecessarily delay their entry into independent research.

To be eligible, investigators, at the time of application, must have received their most recent doctoral degree or completed clinical training within the previous fifteen months or expect to do so within the following twelve months. To be consistent with the updated NIH definition of Early Stage Investigators, eligible clinical training includes clinical residency and clinical fellowship.

The William T. Grant Scholars Program supports career development for promising early-career researchers. The program funds five-year research and mentoring plans that significantly expand researchers' expertise in new disciplines, methods, and content areas.

1. Applicants must be nominated by their institutions. Major divisions (e.g., College of Arts and Sciences, Medical School) of an institution may nominate only one applicant each year. 

2. Applicants must have received their terminal degree within seven years of submitting their application. We calculate this by adding seven years to the date the doctoral degree was conferred. In medicine, the seven-year maximum is dated from the completion of the first residency.


3. Applicants must be employed in career-ladder positions. For many applicants, this means holding a tenure-track position in a university. Applicants in other types of organizations should be in positions in which there is a pathway to advancement in a research career at the organization and the organization is fiscally responsible for the applicant's position. The award may not be used as a post-doctoral fellowship.
Applicants outside the United States are eligible. As with U.S. applicants, they must pursue research that has compelling policy or practice implications for youth in the United States.
