A “limited submission” is a funding opportunity for which the sponsor limits the number of proposals it
will accept from an institution. The Office of Research has developed a process to ensure that CUNY
submits its most competitive proposals to limited submission opportunities that are one per University
system. Other limited submission opportunities are one per college or subject to other restrictions.
This webinar will introduce a new University-wide web-based limited submission resource.
