Some grant and fellowship programs limit the number of proposals that may be submitted by an institution. Please see below for a list of limited submission programs and the status of the associated USA limited submission competition. The list below is not exhaustive.
If you want to apply for a limited submission opportunity that is not listed below please contact Kim Littlefield, Ph.D., Asst. Vice President for guidance about obtaining institutional nomination before submission. Note: if you submit a proposal to a limited submission program without institutional nomination and the institutional limit is exceeded, your proposal, and other proposal(s) submitted from the USA, will very likely be rejected without review. To prevent circumstances such as this the USA Office of RDL coordinates internal limited submission competitions and nomination approval.
