Limited Submissions

A “limited submission” refers to a funding opportunity that limits the number of proposals or applications that an entity can submit each cycle. UTSA has an internal selection process to determine which applicant(s) will submit to these opportunities. The Office of Research Support (ORS) oversees this process.

We have established a transparent and fair process that does not overburden the applicant(s) or reviewers charged with selecting the most competitive proposals to represent the university. Limited submission projects are considered institutional and should demonstrate benefits to UTSA. Exceptions to this process are made in certain situations, for example, when a deadline is short, when a program is highly focused, or when an opportunity reflects a strategic priority or requires significant institutional commitment.

UTSA uses InfoReady Review to automate limited submission competitions, reviews, approval processes, and post-award monitoring of applications submitted to the Limited Submissions program.

Potential Opportunities

Internal Programs  

Limited Submission

Sponsoring agencies occasionally limit the number of applications/nominations the University may submit for specific grants and awards. When a call for proposals is “limited”, the Office of the Vice President for Research uses an internal selection process to determine which application(s) will be submitted to the sponsor for funding consideration. Limited submission grants should be considered institutional and demonstrate benefits to UTSA.

  • Funding Process

Seed Grants

The Office of the Vice President for Research, Economic Development and Knowledge Enterprise (REDKE), through the Office of Strategic Research Initiatives (SRI), administers a number of annual internal funding opportunities, or “seed grants.”
