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.
