Limited Funding

Occasionally, funding opportunity solicitations limit the number of proposals that may be submitted by an institution. In such cases, principal investigators must obtain clearance before proceeding by completing an Expression of Interest form (see below for link).

A listing of limited funding opportunities for the first quarter of 2019 is provided below along with the internal (Expression of Interest) and sponsor deadlines. Principal investigators who express an interest by the deadline will be informed if an internal competition will be invoked or if they may proceed to submit a proposal (or letter of intent) on behalf of the College. If an internal competition is warranted, the deadline for submission of completed white papers will be announced.
