Funding agencies often limit the number of proposals an institution is allowed to submit to a particular program. The Office of the Vice President for Research highlights current limited submission opportunities and outlines Western Michigan University’s procedures for managing agency-imposed limits on submissions.
Limited submission opportunities that OVPR is aware of will be posted on InfoReady. When at the site look for the category "OVPR: Limited Submission", click on the "Title" to submit a Letter of Intent (this is for internal purposes only and consists of a brief project description along with your contact information). OVPR will request white papers if the number of LOI's exceeds the number of proposals a sponsor will allow. Emails will be sent to notify individuals if they should proceed with their proposals or if a white paper is required. White papers will be reviewed by a panel to determine which proposals will move forward to the sponsor.
