Sponsored Projects

Limited Submission Programs

In limited submission programs, the sponsor restricts the number of applications or proposals a campus can submit to the agency. The guidelines for these programs require institutions to screen preproposals or nominations to determine which applications will be submitted for competition.

Limited Submission Cover Sheet


Current Solicitations List

Please note: The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research makes every attempt to identify limited submission opportunities and provide information on limited submissions in a timely manner; however, if a researcher should identify a limited submission that does not appear to have been announced, please forward the program information as soon as possible to ltdsubs@berkeley.edu.


Limited Submission Campus Announcements

The Vice Chancellor for Research Office uses CALmessages to send limited submission announcements to faculty within targeted departments and/or units based on the focus of the agency funding program or, when the program is more general, to faculty campus-wide. For example, a program funding public health research would be directed only to faculty within the School of Public Health.

Research administrators and other staff who also wish to be notified of upcoming limited submission deadlines must sign up for the Limited Submission CALmessages list (CalNet authorization required). Faculty members do not need to sign up for this list; they will receive messages automatically. Staff who sign up for the list will receive all messages, not just those specific to their department.

Limited Submission Applications

Campus applications for limited submission programs should include the application material and the Limited Submission Cover Sheet (see top of this page), submitted in PDF to the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research at ltdsubs@berkeley.edu.

In general, applications for campus review will include a three- to five-page project description, a curriculum vita for each investigator, and a one-page budget that summarizes the total project period. However, please see the announcements below for program-specific information on campus application requirements.

Requests for matching funds or exceptions to campus policies must be identified at this stage and included in the budget page. Requests will be negotiated if the project is selected for submission.

If you have any questions about the internal campus review process, please contact Matthew Andrews in the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research at 643-1795 or ltdsubs@berkeley.edu. For assistance with the preparation of your proposal, please contact your departmental Research Administrator. For questions about submitting the proposal to the funding agency please contact your SPO Contract and Grant Officer.
