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 Call for Interest emails or viewing the Archives of Call for Interest emails.
