Limited Submissions

Limited submission funding opportunities are those where the sponsor limits the number of applications Northwestern can submit. Research Development manages the institutional process, including through the Limited Submission Advisory Committee. The vice president for research is the institutional nominator and has the final authority to select a nominee.
