Limited Submissions

Funding agencies (sponsors) may place limits on the number of letters of intent, pre-proposals, or proposals that any one university can submit in response to a funding opportunity announcement (commonly referred to as a Request for Proposals – RFP). The Limited Submissions Grant Application Process is designed to support an equitable review while preventing any disqualifications due to submissions from The University of Alabama beyond the allowed number.
