Institutional Nominations and Internal Competitions

Sponsors may limit the number of applications that an institution may submit for a particular grant program.  The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education (VCRGE) will coordinate these submissions for research opportunities by determining whether multiple candidates wish to apply and organizing an impartial review to select the most competitive proposal(s) to send forward to the funding agency. Coordination of opportunities that have narrow target research areas will be delegated to the School/College or Department involved in those areas.
