Limited Submission Proposals

Sponsors frequently limit the number of proposals that an organization is able to submit. Funding opportunities, prize competitions, and award nominations with these institutional limits are called "limited submissions." For opportunities that limit the number of submissions/nominations, there is an internal competition to select which proposal(s) will be submitted when more than the allowable number are identified. Our process is detailed here: Limited Submission Proposal and Review Process

Announcements and deadlines for internal competitions are posted in the table below and/or made via email. If you are interested in submitting a proposal for a Limited Solicitation and an internal competition has not been announced, please email ResearchDev@memphis.edu
