Limited Submissions

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.

Overall Process

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. The goal of this process is to ensure that proposals are reviewed in both a fair and competitive manner. This will also allow the Vice Provost for Research to select a pool of reviewers with the proper expertise to present a strong candidate or team to move forward.

The process for submitting and selecting proposals for limited submissions is as follows:

1. Cover page:

  • Sponsor, name of the program, solicitation number
  • PI and all personnel (including co-PIs, senior personnel, subcontractors, etc.) and their affiliation
  • Full title of the project

2. Proposal summary/abstract:

Please submit a one to three-page summary and a budget and budget justification, including cost sharing commitments required in the solicitation. If a cost sharing commitment is required by the sponsor or if the PI is requesting tuition cost share, approval is required form the Dean/Department Head as to how this financial commitment will be supported.

Submission process 

Researchers will submit an abstract via the Google form. Only those forms which have been fully completed and received by 5:00 pm (CST) on the stated internal deadline date will move forward.  Late submissions will not be accepted. The Office of Sponsored Research and Programs will manage the internal submission process. Email submissions will not be accepted.

Review Panel

The Vice Provost for Research, or designee, will convene an internal panel to review properly submitted summaries. The panel will meet to discuss the relative merits of the summary and to recommend the summary (ies) to be invited to submit. On rare occasions, the panel’s recommendations may not be accepted by the Vice Provost for Research based on University priorities or best interests.

Please contact Domenica Pappas if you should have any questions.
