Limited submissions funding opportunities restrict the number of applications or proposals that an institution may submit for consideration. At UT Dallas, the Office of Research Development is responsible for managing the screening process of potential submissions to determine which proposal will go forward to the sponsoring agency.

Limited Submissions Process


Limited submissions (LS) announcements are posted on the Office of Research website and emailed to targeted deans, program heads, and professors who may have an interest. These announcements identify the opportunity, give a brief description, provide a link to the funding agency’s site, and indicate all internal and external deadlines.

Faculty Must Adhere To All Posted Deadlines

While ORD makes every effort to identify all LS opportunities and notify faculty, it is the responsibility of the faculty to contact the office with an opportunity that she/he is interested in, but has not yet received an announcement about from ORD.
