Limited submission competitions are funding opportunities for which the sponsor limits the number of applications an institution can submit. Extra submissions may result in the rejection of all submissions from the institution. Therefore these opportunities often require an internal selection process to determine which proposal teams can move forward with an application.
The Office of the Executive Vice President for Research (EVPR) facilitates limited submissions for Georgia Tech.
Georgia Tech (GT) administers a number of known recurring limited submission opportunities. View this list below. The GT applicant selection process for these competitions is administered centrally by the EVPR for some competitions and is managed at the unit level for others.
For EVPR administered competitions, we strive to notify the campus about internal competitions at least 24 weeks prior to the sponsor's deadline. Applicants have 9-10 weeks to submit an internal pre-proposal, with a goal of notifying selected applicants in time to allow for 8-9 weeks to prepare their proposal for submission to the sponsor.
To view a list of all open EVPR-administered internal limited submission competitions, go to the Georgia Tech Internal Competition site.
To determine the selection process and/or timeline for unit-administered competitions, you must contact the GT competition owner for more information.
New limited submission competitions are released and/or brought to the attention of the EVPR all the time. Once a competition is known the EVPR, the office works with the appropriate units to determine the selection process. For discipline-focused solicitations, we will defer to the relevant IRI/center/school/college to identify a selection process. For broad-interest solicitations with sufficient time to coordinate an internal competition, the EVPR office will create and publicize a selection process.
If we are notified of a limited submission opportunity with insufficient time to coordinate an internal competition, available submission slots may be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. In these circumstances, we will make a good-faith inquiry with relevant IRI/center/school leaders to understand the relevant efforts that are already underway.
If you are interested in a limited submission opportunity, which is not advertised internally, please contact your Associate Dean of Research and email VPRDO.gatech.edu immediately.
