Limted Submission opportunities are coordinated by the Office of the Vice President for Research (VPR) to private foundations, federal agencies, and other outside sponsors. The Limited Submissions team along with the Limited Submission Committee in the VPR Office coordinates limited submission opportunities from outside sponsors.

UVA faculty, students, and staff can use this page to identify and apply for Limited Submission Opportunities and Other Internal Awards.
