Limited Submission Programs

 



What is a limited submission program?

Limited submission programs are external sponsored research grants that require an internal selection process because the sponsor limits the number of applications that can be submitted by Stanford.
The School of Medicine limited submission program is facilitated by Chelsey Perry, the Funding Opportunities Manager in the Research Management Group. Chelsey can be reached at chelseyp@stanford.edu.
Patti McCabe in the Vice Provost and Dean of Research Office facilitates the Dean of Research Office Limited Program process and review committee. Patti can be reached at pmccabe@stanford.edu.

NIH National Cancer Institute (NCI)
The NCI Predoctoral to Postdoctoral Fellow Transition Award (F99/K00)(RFA-CA-19-057)
 Limited-only ONE application is permitted. Therefore, a university-wide internal selection process is required. 
Purpose: The award will facilitate the transition of talented graduate students into successful cancer research postdoctoral appointments, and provide opportunities for career development activities relevant to their long-term career goals of becoming independent cancer researchers.
The F99/K00 award is meant to provide up to 6 years of support in two phases. The initial (F99) phase will provide support for 1-2 years of dissertation research (final experiments, dissertation preparation, and selection of a postdoctoral mentor). The transition (K00) phase will provide up to 4 years of mentored postdoctoral research and career development support, contingent upon successful completion of the doctoral degree requirements and securing a cancer-focused postdoctoral position.
Eligibility: The applicant must have a baccalaureate degree and be currently enrolled as a graduate student in the third or fourth year of a mentored PhD or equivalent research degree program (e.g., DrPH, ScD) in the biomedical, behavioral, or clinical sciences at a domestic institution. F99 eligibility is determined from the date of enrollment as a graduate student at the PhD institution and includes the time spent to earn a MS degree unless there was a major change in research area and a change in research mentor. The applicant must be at the dissertation research stage of training at the time of award, and must show evidence of high academic performance in the sciences and commitment to a career as an independent cancer research scientist.  See the webpage below for additional eligibility criteria.

NIH The KUH/ NIDDK Predoctoral to Postdoctoral Fellow Transition Award (F99/K00 Clinical Trial Not Allowed) (RFA-DK-18-024)
National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases
Limited to ONE application
Purpose: To recruit exceptional graduate students who are recognized by their institutions for their high potential to incentivize them to pursue a *Kidney, Urologic or Hematologic (K, U, or H) postdoctoral position that ultimately positions them to become independent K, U, or H researchers. This two-phase award will facilitate completion of the doctoral dissertation and stabilize the transition of highly talented Ph.D candidates from a variety of fields, including, but not limited to, engineering, statistics, data science, imaging, biochemistry and genetics into strong postdoctoral appointments that are focused on K, U, or H research. The current dissertation research topic does not need to be focused on K, U, or H research.
Eligibility: The applicant must have a baccalaureate degree and be currently enrolled as a graduate student in the third or fourth year of a mentored PhD or equivalent research degree program (e.g., Dr. PH, ScD).  The applicant must be at the dissertation research stage of training at the time of award, and must show evidence of extremely high academic performance in the sciences and a stated commitment to a career as an independent Kidney, Urologic, or Hematologic research scientist (see the guidelines for additional criteria).
Note: this RFA states this is not meant for predoctoral students who are already involved in k-kidney, u-urology, or h-hematologic research and who already plan to pursue KUH postdocs positions and careers as KUH independent research scientist careers. Those pre-docs are encouraged to submit applications instead to NIH NRSA Individual Predoctoral Fellowship Parent F31 (PA-18-671) (April 8, Dec. 8 deadlines)

Limited program
# of applicants permitted:
3:
The MRI program requires that an MRI-eligible organization may, as a performing organization, submit or be included as a significantly funded subawardee in no more than three MRI proposals. (See the definition of a significantly funded subawardee in the webpage below)
Each performing organization may submit in revised “Tracks” as defined below, with no more than two submissions in Track 1 and no more than one submission in Track 2
Track 1: Track 1 MRI proposals are those that request funds from NSF greater than or equal to $100,0001 and less than $1,000,000.
Track 2: Track 2 MRI proposals are those that request funds from NSF greater than or equal to $1,000,000 up to and including $4,000,000.

Cost Sharing Requirement Note: The 30% cost-sharing requirement applies to only the portion of the total project cost budgeted to non-exempt organizations, including those participating through subawards. When required, cost-sharing must be precisely 30%. Cost sharing is required for Ph.D.-granting institutions of higher education and for non-degree-granting organizations.
Eligibility: Stanford faculty with PI eligibility
See "eligible fields of science and engineering" and medical research restriction (& exceptions) sections in the webpage below
Other eligibility criteria-re: SLAC:

FFRDC-related [i.e., SLAC] Proposals
: Proposals for the acquisition or development of an instrument involving another Federal agency or one of their Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs) must be submitted as a consortium proposal by an MRI submission-eligible organization as described in item 3(b) under “Eligibility Information”. In addition to at least two MRI submission-eligible organizations, the proposal must include the agency/FFRDC (or its managing organization) as a partner in the consortium, even if the role of the FFRDC in the project is solely to house the instrument. An instrument must make unique contributions to the needs of researchers within the consortium and/or establish access to new multi-user research capabilities. Preliminary inquiry to the cognizant MRI point of contact should be made before preparing a proposal for submission
Note: if an instrument to be housed at SLAC, then the PI for the proposal must be a Stanford faculty member with a primary appointment in a department on campus. That faculty member must submit an internal proposal, per the internal submission guidelines below, as a “consortium” proposal, with SLAC as a “partner”.
