Limited Submission Process
In Limited Submission Programs, the sponsor restricts the number of applications or proposals MUSC can submit. The guidelines for these programs require institutions to screen pre-proposals or nominations to determine which applications will be submitted for competition.
Internal Proposal Submission, Review, & Selection
Faculty members interested in a limited submissions opportunity should follow the instructions provided in the internal announcement for the respective opportunity. Faculty are responsible for reviewing and downloading all provided information both from the ORD and the sponsor’s website, before deciding to be considered for nomination, and must adhere to all posted deadlines. An ad-hoc peer review panel evaluates internal pre-proposals according to the program guidelines and criteria and makes recommendations. The Vice President for Research makes final determinations. All applicants are notified of the decision by email, with copies to their department chair and respective grants coordinator in the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs. By submitting a pre-proposal, investigative teams are bound to submit full applications if their project is selected.
