Limited Submission Opportunities

Funding agencies often limit the number of proposals an institution is allowed to submit to a particular program. The Office of the Vice President for Research highlights current limited submission opportunities and outlines Western Michigan University’s procedures for managing agency-imposed limits on submissions.

Any faculty or staff that is interested in submitting to the opportunities listed below must notify OVPR  no later than the deadline listed for the internal notice of intent—NOI. The NOI must contain the following information: name(s) and department(s) of potential PI and Co-PIs (if any) and a 2-3 sentence description of the potential project.
