Limited Submissions

Limited Submissions are funding opportunities in which sponsors limit the number of proposals from an institution. Institutions like U-M must submit its most competitive proposal. To do so, an internal competition is required. 

Following are the current limited submission opportunities offered campus-wide. You may also want to learn about the Limited Submissions Procedure Instructions or find out about potential Limited opportunities by signing up for the Weekly Call for Interest emails.
