  Limited Submissions

Many sponsors have programs that allow only a limited number of nominations or proposal submissions from any one institution. For each limited submission solicitation, USC will have an internal competition to select the most competitive candidate to submit a proposal. If you plan to submit a proposal for consideration, your proposal submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research, via Research and Grant Development. For USC's procedures regarding Limited Submissions, please click here.
