BACKGROUND INFORMATION

What is a limited submission opportunity (LSO)?
A limited submission is a funding opportunity for which the funding agency has limited the number of proposals that UCLA may submit. We attempt to identify available limited submission opportunities and provide information about them in a timely manner. However, if a researcher is aware of an opportunity that does not appear in our portal, please contact our office (limitedsubmissions@conet.ucla.edu) so that we can ensure that the opportunity goes through the campus process. Any additional questions regarding limited submissions can also be directed to limitedsubmissions@conet.ucla.edu

How can I learn about upcoming limited submission opportunities?
All open, extended, and closed limited submission opportunities (from the past year) can be accessed through our online LSO portal
If you would like to receive a regular newsletter of new opportunities posted to the LSO portal, please subscribe to our weekly newsletter here

 

HOW WE HANDLE LIMITED SUBMISSION OPPORTUNITIES AT UCLA:

 

Step 1: Opportunity Announced

On a rolling basis, limited submission opportunities are added to the portal.  The postings include information regarding the requirements for internal submission. The opportunities posted in the portal are also announced in our weekly newsletter, which you can subscribe to here


Internal deadlines and requirements are set so as to provide faculty adequate time to prepare internal submission materials, while also providing the selected applicant(s) sufficient time to prepare proposal(s) in advance of the agency deadline.

Step 2: Submissions Received or Opportunity Becomes “Extended”

Interested applicants should use the “Apply Now” button at the bottom of a funding opportunity description in the portal in order to fill out the online application and submit the required materials. All applications must be submitted through the portal by 11:59 pm on the internal due date. If you anticipate having difficulty meeting this deadline, please contact limitedsubmissions@conet.ucla.edu in advance of the internal due date. View a sample of the application.


If no applications are received by the internal deadline (or fewer applications than the funding agency limit), an opportunity will have its status changed to “extended,” at which point it becomes open until filled. If you are interested in applying for an opportunity in “extended” status, please contact limitedsubmissions@conet.ucla.edu to determine how to proceed.

Step 3: Internal Review Process

Once the internal deadline has passed (or a submission is received for an “extended” opportunity), an internal review process will take place in order to determine the selected UCLA applicant(s) who will be given permission to proceed with the submission. All applicants will be notified regarding the outcome of the review of their internal application.

Step 4: Submission to Funding Agency

The researcher(s) given permission to proceed will submit the proposal(s) to the funding agency following submission procedures. Researchers should consult with the grant contact(s) in their department to determine the appropriate time frame and steps for submission. If an applicant is given permission to proceed with an application and should subsequently decide not to apply, the researcher should contact limitedsubmissions@conet.ucla.edu as soon as possible.
