Certain agencies and program announcements limit the number of proposal submissions from a given institution. Submitting too many proposals may result in the automatic rejection of all proposals from Tufts. The Office of the Vice Provost for Research (OVPR) facilitates the limited submission process to ensure such submission restrictions are met. For those limited submission opportunities from foundations, the OVPR works closely with the Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations (CFR) to facilitate the process.
If a faculty or staff member identifies a limited submission prior to an OVPR announcement, that individual should notify OVPR immediately to ensure that no more than the specified numbers of applications are submitted.
OVPR and CFR receive mailings, newsletters, and email notifications about limited submission funding opportunities. When a limited opportunity is identified, OVPR will notify the community by an email notification which contains information about the limited submission opportunity, the internal deadline, and the required internal application materials. This information is sent to subscribers via an internal Tufts email list. To subscribe to the email list for limited submission notices, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or follow the instructions here.
Some limited opportunities are focused on a specific scientific area or open to a specific group. In these cases it will be more appropriate to target the opportunity to those who match the specificity.
Please note, some limited funding opportunities are offered on an annual basis. If the deadline for an opportunity for this year has passed, anyone interested in the future opportunity should contact OVPR to ensure they are on the limited submissions notification list so they will receive the notice for the following year. However, if you know of a particular limited submission announcement that has not been distributed by OVPR or is not on this list, please forward it, as soon as possible, via e-mail to email@example.com.
1) Submitting an E-mail of Intent
Anyone wishing to submit a proposal in response to an announcement or a funder found on the list should send a brief e-mail of intent to the Limited Submission Team at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: Limited Submission Announcement (PROGRAM NAME FROM ANNOUNCEMENT). To expedite the process of planning an internal review, please send this e-mail as soon as you know you have an interest in the funding program. For limited submissions involving foundations, please copy CFR at email@example.com.
The e-mail of intent needs to include only the name of the program to which you intend to apply, the name of the Principal Investigator, any co-PI’s, the subject or title of the proposed project, PI’s biosketch and detailed description of no more than 500 words outlining the PI’s qualifications and a description of the proposed project.
If you miss this deadline, please contact Limited Submission Team at firstname.lastname@example.org to determine the status of the particular program.
2) Email of Intent Notification
All applications will be acknowledged.
3) Review and Selection
Based on the expertise required for the individual program, the Vice Provost for Research will determine:
The Vice Provost for Research shall, with advice from the Standing Committee, decide which, if any, of the above processes will be implemented for all limited submission solicitations.
4) Notification of Selection and Full Proposal Submission
All candidates will be notified of results. Following the selection of candidates that can move forward, an e-mail will be sent to all those that submitted an internal proposal. The e-mail will specify the final decision for that individual’s proposal. Reviewer comments are given upon request of the applicant. Results and names or topics of other potential applicants are not normally released. However, applicants can choose to have their names released. Selected applications must include official notification from the Limited Submissions Team in order to submit a full proposal.
