Limited Submission programs restrict the number of applications, nominations, or proposals that an institution is eligible to submit to an agency. These programs require that campuses screen preproposals or nominations to determine which will go forward to the sponsor.
Research Development in the Office of Research (OR) is responsible for announcing the majority of limited submission programs to the campus and coordinating the campus review process. When OR receives more potential submissions than the campus is authorized to submit, a campus review will be developed in consultation with the Vice Chancellor for Research. All applicants and their deans will be notified of the results. For campus instructions and agency requirements for specific programs, see the links below. Typically campus pre-proposals are due to the Office of Research two months prior to the agency deadline.
Beginning April 1, 2019, Research Development will begin accepting limited submission letters of intent through our new InfoReady Competition Space (ucsb.infoready4.com).
Competition Space from InfoReady Review is a web-based, centralized competition platform that streamlines the process for limited submission programs, competitions, and other internal opportunities.
InfoReady Review is integrated with UCSB’s single sign-on (SSO) allowing students, staff, and faculty to log in using their UCSB NetID.
Some past campus deadlines may still be open for submissions if fewer than the eligible number of preliminary proposals were received and the sponsor's deadline has not passed. Approval to apply to the sponsoring agency may be granted on a first come, first served basis based on Research Development receiving preproposal materials.
Those interested in submitting an application or nomination to a limited submission program should contact Kelly Pillsbury at email@example.com or ext. 8891.
