Limited Submissions

What is a Limited Submission?

Limited submissions are funding opportunities where the funder has limited the number of applications from an organization. Research Development Services (RDS) facilitates limited submissions for federal and foundation opportunities for UA. Selected proposals will need to follow UA proposal submission procedures. Please note that proposals to private foundations may require submission and coordination through the University of Arizona Foundation.

The Limited Submissions Newsletter is sent to subscribers on Thursdays and lists all current Upcoming and Open Limited Submissions available to the UA campus. Subscribe here

Limited Submission Preferred Timeline

We strive to notify campus of internal competitions for limited submissions at least 12 weeks prior to the funder’s deadline. Applicants have two weeks to submit an internal pre-proposal to RDS and another 1-2 weeks to receive the go-ahead to submit or not. This timeline allows 8-9 weeks for applicants to prepare their proposal for submission to the funder.
