 Limited Submission Competitions

Some sponsors limit the number of nominations or proposals that Cornell (including Weill Medical College) may submit to a particular program. Announcement of these special limited submission competitions is made via SPS's listservs. Internal nominations or proposals are coordinated by the Office of the Vice Provost for Research and reviewed by the Faculty Senate's Local Advisory Committee. Nominations/proposals are selected to go forward based on how closely they match the sponsor's interests and thus have the best opportunity for success. 

Deadline dates occur throughout the year, and programs do not always have the same annual deadline; also, some invitations are not issued annually. Thus, deadline dates are not included on following list. This list is updated as necessary; currently the Committee reviews nominations and proposals for the following programs:
