Current Limited Submission Opportunities

 

Federal and non-federal funders frequently announce funding opportunities and awards for which the school or university is either restricted to submit a limited number of applications or is required to endorse nominees. Applications for these awards are available by invitation only (i.e., potential candidates may not apply directly to the specific foundations for these programs) and thus nominees must be internally screened and selected.

The Limited Submission Opportunities listed below are divided into the following three categories:
Closed: Harvard Chan nominee has been selected
Active Internal Competitions: Currently Accepting Applications/Notices of Intent
Open for Nomination: The Notice of Intent deadline has expired and a Harvard Chan nominee has not yet been identified.
