Limited Submission Programs

Limited submission programs are externally sponsored projects that require an internal selection process because the sponsor limits the number of applications that may be submitted by an institution. Limited submission programs with a clinical or biomedical research focus are facilitated by the Research Management Group on behalf of the School of Medicine. Limited submission programs on other topics are facilitated by the Research Development Office within the Office of the Vice Provost and Dean of Research on behalf of the university. To review university-wide limited submission funding opportunities, please see the DoResearch Engagement Hub.

Foundation, Prize & Other Limited Submission Programs

NIH Limited Submission Programs

Unless otherwise stated, faculty with PI eligibility (those with UTL, UML, NTLR appointments) and Clinician Educator (CE) faculty (with an approved CE PI waiver) are considered eligible by Stanford policies. Not eligible: Instructors, Clinical Instructors, Academic staff-researchers (i.e., basic scientists, research associates), and Postdocs are not eligible because Stanford does not consider them to be independent or faculty-level positions.
