Limited Submissions Program

View and submit internal pre-proposals to limited and coordinated submission programs.

The Program

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.

The Process


Announcements are added weekly to the UC Davis InfoReady Review system, and emailed to our research community via the Weekly Research Funding Update; you can Subscribe to the Weekly Research Funding Update here.

LS Submission

Principal Investigators (PIs) interested in applying to a limited submission opportunity submit an internal “letter of intent” (LOI) within the InfoReady Review System

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.

Sponsor Submission

Selected investigators submit their proposal to the Sponsored Programs Office (SPO) for review and approval, following standard submission procedures.
