Research Management Group (RMG)

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 limited submission programs are facilitated by Jeanne Heschele on behalf of the Vice Provost and Dean of Research Office and the School of Medicine Research Management Group (RMG).
Please contact Jeanne at jheschele@stanford.edu for any questions about these programs.

Eligibility: 
Applicant: 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., EngD, DNSc, DrPH, DSW, ScD) in the biomedical, behavioral, or clinical sciences at a domestic institution. 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 guidelines for additional criteria.
Mentor: The primary sponsor should be the applicant's primary dissertation research advisor and be committed both to the applicant’s research training and to direct supervision of his/her research. The sponsor should have a successful track record of mentoring predoctoral students.
Citizenship: An applicant may be a citizen or a noncitizen national of the United States or have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence (i.e., possess a currently valid Permanent Resident Card USCIS Form I-551, or other legal verification of such status), or be a non-U.S. citizen with a valid U.S. visa. For applications submitted on behalf of non-U.S. citizens with valid U.S. visas, the visa status during each phase of the F99/K00 award must allow the PD/PI to conduct the proposed research at the applicant institution. 
Note: The F99/K00 award may not be used to support studies leading to the MD, DDS, or other clinical, health-professional degree (e.g., DC, DMD, DNP, DO, DPM, DVM, ND, OD, AuD). Students matriculated in a dual-degree program (e.g. MD/PhD, DO/PhD, DDS/PhD, or DVM/PhD) are not eligible for the F99/K00 program.
