Grant Opportunities: Limited Submissions

Limited submission proposals have some form of limitation imposed by the sponsor on the number and/or type of proposals an institution may submit in response to a particular funding opportunity announcement.

The Division of Research monitors funding opportunity announcements and, when a limited submission stipulation exists, coordinates a pre-proposal process to determine which proposal(s) UH will submit to the sponsor.
