Limited Submissions Process Flow - Research Format

 Strategic and Large-scale Limited Grants

ORD realizes the importance of time to strategically plan for large scale, cross-disciplinary initiatives. Maximum time to prepare a large submission is a valuable and rare commodity for faculty, particularly in the current funding climate. ORD is piloting a modified version of the current limited submission selection process for these particular grants. With that in mind, The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research may determine that certain limited submission grants are considered as critically important to the research mission of the University; in such cases relevant teams may be strategically identified by the Vice Chancellor.
