Limited Submission Programs

Sponsors sometimes limit the number of proposals that UNH may submit to a specific funding opportunity. UNH has established policies and procedures to handle these types of funding opportunities.

 

Limited Submission Programs (LSPs) with deadlines in the next few months are communicated broadly

 

(1) A list on the Research Office website - Current LSP Deadlines
(2) A monthly email sent to the Research Office's list of Principal Investigators & Project Directors

(If you're not getting this message and want to add your name to the PI/PD list,
sign up here.)

Standardized procedures have been implemented to facilitate a fair and strategic University-wide process to select the proposals to be submitted to these programS

 

National Endowment to the Humanities (NEH) Summer Stipend: Applicant selection program is conducted by the Center for the Humanities.

Programs of high interest: Internal competitions will be announced by the Director of Research Development via an email that will contain the deadlines and details of the competition. Open competitons will appear on the internal competiton portal site.

These programs include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • NSF Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI)
  • NSF Partnerships for Research & Education (PIRE)
  • Pew Scholars Program in the Biomedical Sciences
  • Searle Scholars Program

All other sponsors/programs: Check Current LSP Deadlines or the internal competiton portal site to see if an internal competition is underway or if interest has been expressed by another researcher. 

If a competion is not underway, then please indicate your interest in applying by sending an email to Kathy Cataneo no later than 2 months before the sponsor's deadline that includes:

  • 1-2 page summary of your intended project
  • Sponsor's name, specific program name, deadline date, and URL for the program guidelines (or attach a copy of the guidelines)

If more individuals indicate interest than the number of proposals allowed, the Director of Research Development, in consultation with the Senior Vice Provost for Research and an Advisory Committee, will determine whether an internal competition will be conducted to inform their strategic choices re: which proposals will go forward from UNH.

FOR ALL PROGRAMS, if it is past the internal competition deadline OR within 2 months of the sponsor's deadline:
Contact Kathy Cataneo to see if there are any remaining openings.
