Limited Submission Calendar

Printer-friendly version

A number of extramural programs limit the number of applications that the University of Oregon may submit. We have established an internal selection process for the limited submission programs listed below. If - after carefully reading the review criteria - you determine the funding opportunity is a good match for your proposed project, submit a pre-proposal form by the internal deadline listed below to rds@uoregon.edu. For instructions on how to save this form after you download it, click here.

The pre-proposal is essentially a concept paper about your proposed project. The review criteria for pre-proposals include:

  • Strength of PI and investigator team qualifications, including prior grant funding, publication record, and, if applicable, experience leading multi-project or other complex projects
  • Responsiveness to the program solicitation and review criteria
  • Impact and intellectual merit of the proposed project
  • Alignment with OVPRI strategic objectives
  • If resubmission, responsiveness to reviewer comments from prior submission

If you identify a program that we have not listed that limits submissions, or if you have questions about any of the limited submission opportunities listed below, please contact Research Development Services (rds@uoregon.edu).

Note that proposals to private foundations may require clearance through Foundation Relations. Those foundations are listed on the Sponsored Project Services website.
