Limited Submissions

Limited submissions are funding opportunities that place a limit on the number of applicants and/or applications can be submitted from the University of Pittsburgh.  In order to submit a proposal in response to a limited submission opportunity, you must first submit a pre-proposal to the Pitt Office of Research by the internal deadline.  If more nominations/applications are received than permitted by the sponsor, the pre-proposal will undergo an internal university review process conducted by an ad hoc committee.  This committee will make recommendations as to who will submit an application for the next cycle.
