Please notify Research Administration Services (RAS) about your intent to pursue a Limited Submission Opportunity well in advance of the deadline. Please include the title and solicitation number.

Funding agencies often limit the number of proposals that institutions may submit in response to certain solicitations. RAS lists those opportunities here and send periodic reminders to faculty to please visit this page and inform us if they intend to respond to any of these opportunities. In case the number of applicants exceeds our institutional limits, our office asks that the applicants submit two-page white papers for review. We also convene an internal review competition through which a committee consisting of a representative from the Office of the Vice President for Research along with peer faculty experts from NMSU review submitted white papers and select the best application(s) to move forward based on their white papers and 15-minute presentations and question answering.

While our office is proactive in identifying limited submission opportunities, there might be cases when we are not aware of such solicitations. In these cases, we ask that faculty who are interested in responding to these opportunities to notify us as soon as possible so we may proceed with following the established process for limited submissions.

Current limited submission opportunities are listed by agency below along with their internal deadlines to notify our office about your intent to pursue them, followed by major deadlines for submission of proposals the agencies.
