Limited Submissions

Faculty who want to submit a proposal to a limited submission opportunity should indicate their intentions to the Associate Deans for Research in their college, Conrad Monson (, or Kristen Kellems (, 2-8967). Whenever multiple faculty want to apply to the same opportunity (typically a limited submission opportunity only allows one or two submittals from a university), the deans select those faculty who can submit. The selection process and list of limited submission opportunities are posted on the Limited Submissions Opportunities page of the RD website:
