The Office of Research Development (ORD) is responsible for facilitating the Limited Submission Grants program. When an agency limits the number of applications an institution can put forward and it crosses disciplines, ORD coordinates and manages the University’s internal selection process. If ORD receives more applications than the agency permits, we organize a peer-led internal review. View answers to our frequently asked questions.
If we receive notice of a grant that is not on our regular list of awards and we hear of it eight weeks prior to the agency deadline, we will let the PI who contacts us about it submit internally as there is no time to have an internal review.
For limited submission grants whose funding amount is greater than $5 million, ORD assists faculty teams in strategically preparing proposals with no formal internal review.
Beginning December 15, 2014, the Center for Faculty Excellence (CFE), handles the Awards portion of the Limited Submissions program. Sohini Sengupta (firstname.lastname@example.org ) is the coordinator. ORD continues to manage the Limited Submission Grants Program.
