Limited Submissions

Please check back frequently. We will post opportunities when they become known.

Limited Submissions are grant opportunities that restrict the number of applications from qualified institutions. In these cases, UTHealth will post opportunities on this page as they become available and specify the requirements needed to launch an internal competition to select the university's applicant(s).

Michael R. Blackburn, PhD, Executive Vice President & Chief Academic Officer, will establish ad hoc internal review committees as needed based upon the nature of the RFA and the pre-applications received. 

If an investigator identifies a limited opportunity that is not posted on this page, he or she should contact Deanne Hernandez via email to express interest. Opportunities are considered first-come, first-served if the sponsor deadline is less than two months' away. If the deadline is more than two months' away, an internal competition will launch.
