Limited submissions

Limited Submissions are extramural funding opportunities that limit the number applications submitted per institution. Faculty that are interested in applying for a limited submission that is not posted on InfoReady must contact the Office of the Vice President for Research to verify their eligibility and ensure that another application has not been selected to submit.  Failure to comply with this internal submission process may lead to the automatic rejection of a proposal selected by the University of Utah.
