Current Limited Submission Opportunities

Some agencies limit the number of proposals an institution may submit to a specific program. The Research Development Office attempts to identify all opportunities of interest to the NC State research community and coordinates the submission process with the colleges.  If you are aware of other programs that are institutionally limited, please notify the Research Development Office so that they may be announced.  Following the contact requirements for limited submissions ensures eligibility for proposals moving forward and minimizes the risk of all proposals from NC State being rejected by the funding agency for non-compliance.  Learn more about NC State’s limited submission process.
