Limited Submission Programs

Limited submission programs are those for which funding agencies restrict the number of nominations or proposals a university may submit for consideration for an award. The University of Texas at Austin, therefore, must internally screen all eligible and interested nominees to determine which will represent the university in the regional, national or international competitions.

Below is a list of limited submission programs in which UT currently competes. Included are deadlines for internal review and the final deadlines of the awarding agency. Researchers must contact their Dean’s or ORU Director’s office to ensure that deadlines at that level of review are met. Please note: This list is not exclusive nor exhaustive, since new programs are developed and existing programs change.

Documents required by the Vice President for Research Office (VPR) are listed for each internal competition. Potential nominees must ensure that they are aware of any additional requirements and eligibility guidelines of the awarding body beyond the VPR internal competition. In all cases, requirements for internal review will mirror the requirements of the awarding body to reduce duplication or extraneous paperwork. Unless stated otherwise, all required documentation should be submitted electronically (preferably as a PDF file) to by the posted deadline.

Every effort will be made to maintain current and accurate information within this list; however, the awarding agency’s posted information remains the final authority.
