In Limited Submission Programs, the sponsor restricts the number of applications or proposals a campus can submit. The guidelines for these programs require institutions to screen pre-proposals or nominations to determine which applications will be submitted for competition.
The Office of Proposal Development (OPD) tracks the limited submission programs and posts them to this web site. Individuals interested in applying to a limited program will submit an internal application through this site by clicking the Submit hyperlink associated with the program. If the number of potential internal applicants exceeds program limits, an internal review will be conducted to select the most competitive proposals for submission to the external funding agency.
If your project is selected from the internal competition, you will need to work with Sponsored Research Administration, or the FSU Research Foundation for private funds, in the usual way to prepare, route and submit your proposal to the agency.
Note: This list is not comprehensive. Those applying to a limited submission RFP that is not posted on our website should contact OPD immediately. OPD will review the guidelines, establish an appropriate internal review date, and post the RFP to the website.
Note: The deadline to submit your proposal has recently changed. All submissions must be complete, including the receipt of dean and chair signatures, by 5:00 p.m. EST the day of the internal deadline. Please view the policy for more details.
