A limited submission program is a funding program in which the sponsor sets an institutional limit for the number of applications or proposals the campus can submit. A coordinated submission program is a funding program in which the sponsor imposes other types of restrictions on applications submitted by an institution–restrictions that necessitate a process of internal coordination before submission.
LS Review and Selection
If the number of received LOIs is less than or equal to the institutional limit, the investigator(s) is given approval to proceed with an application. If the number of LOIs exceed the institutional limit, the limited submission coordinator will solicit a project description from each applicant, and a faculty review committee will conduct a review.
For popular recurring limited submission programs, the LOI stage will likely be skipped and PIs will be asked to submit a project description, in addition to possible other materials, for review.
The Office of Research selects and notifies the nominee(s) based on the committee recommendation. Review feedback is provided upon decision, if there was a committee review.
