Funding opportunities from professional societies and foundations.
Some sponsors have limits on the number of proposals that may be submitted from an organization. In these cases, an internal selection process is required to determine which proposals will go forward. When the number of abstracts received is more than the number of proposals allowed per the solicitation, an internal competition will be necessary.
