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.
