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 following is a list of current limited submission opportunities.  If you are interested in applying for any of these opportunities, please:

a)      Click on the individual award description for information about the LSO and internal application instructions.

b)      In instances where there are no internal application instructions, please submit a brief notice of intent to the HSPH Office of Research Strategy and Development (orsd@hsph.harvard.edu). Please include: PI name, HSPH Department, limited submission opportunity of interest, brief (1-2 sentence) description of proposed project/area of interest.
