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.

W.M. Keck Foundation Research Program
Call for Concept Papers
Number of applicants permitted: Up to eight concept papers total may be submitted to the foundation, one of which (for each program) may then be selected to advance to the Phase I application process.  A university-wide internal selection process is required (first at the school level, then at the Dean of Research Office).

Eligibility: Faculty with PI eligibility
 (with UTL, MCL, and NTL-Research appointments) across the natural and earth sciences, engineering, and medicine at all ranks are eligible. Keck has a stated interest in interdisciplinary research, thus proposals may also come from a team of faculty across departments, disciplines, or schools.  Keck is looking for “out-of-the-box” projects that push forward basic science, present unconventional approaches to intractable problems, or challenge prevailing paradigms. High-risk projects are encouraged and the foundation recognizes that not all such projects will succeed.

The foundation has broad interests, but has also expressed a growing interest in fundamental energy-related research
Up to $2M over 5 years.
Internal deadline for all schools: July
The internal selection process is based on whether or not Stanford is invited by the foundation to submit a group of applications for its two Phase I proposal deadlines.
