Many external grants limit the number of submissions (e.g., by institution or PI). The Office for Research and Discovery (ORD) handles the process for choosing which proposal(s) the UA submits in these cases. If you are aiming at a funding opportunity with such limitations, check ORD's Limited Solicitations Calendar first. This webpage also informs campus of which pre-proposals are selected to go forward on each limited submission.
All limited submission applications must first be submitted to college deans for college-level review and submission to ORD. Proposals on which SBS faculty/researchers are principal investigators must be submitted to Jane Zavisca, Associate Dean for Research, at least one week before the ORD deadline, to provide sufficient time for coordination of internal review.
SBSRI and the SBS research dean are happy to advise on development of limited submission pre-proposals, provided sufficient advance notice. Note that Research Development Services in ORD does not assist with proposal development for limited submission preproposals or other internal competitions
