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

Announcements

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

To be considered for these opportunities, please send a letter of intent (LOI) to Emily Lacy by the internal deadline (by 11:59pm CST on the day listed below).

The LOI for any internal limited submission needs to be a one page document (it may be a bit longer or shorter, but it shouldn’t be longer than two pages) answering the following questions:

  • What is the project you want to propose?
  • Why is it a good project and how does it fit the program you are applying to?
  • Who is on your team?
