A limited submission program is a funding program in which the sponsor restricts the number of applications or proposals that an institution may submit. Northeastern University requires an internal review and selection process for any funding opportunity that limits the number of pre-proposal or proposal submissions.

Before applying for an opportunity with limited submission requirements, you must follow the Procedure for Programs with Limited Submissions to secure authorization to submit.  The Senior Vice Provost for Research, Art Kramer, authorizes limited submission opportunities.

Opportunities are identified through invitations, internet searches, web services and historical opportunities. Please be aware that the list may not be comprehensive. If you become aware of a funding opportunity with limited submission requirements that is not listed, please contact limitedsubmissions@neu.edu immediately with the program title, due date, and URL.
