If you are interested in applying for any of the Limited Submission opportunities below, or if you find a funding opportunity that is not on the list below that is a Limited Submission opportunity, please contact grantlab@nova.edu to declare your intent to apply and to be included in the Limited Submission selection process.

What is a Limited Submission?

Limited Submission opportunities are funding opportunities where the funders place a limit on the number or types of applications that Nova Southeastern University investigators can submit, either as a pre- or full proposal.  Such restrictions are included in the grant announcement.  The University is responsible for selecting the institutional applicant.

Who is responsible for Limited Submissions at NSU?

Nova Southeastern University, through the Office of Translational Research and Economic Development, is responsible for coordinating the review and selection of institutional nominees.  If you are interested in applying for any of the Limited Submission opportunities listed, or if you find a funding opportunity that is not on the list that is a Limited Submission opportunity, please contact grantlab@nova.edu to declare your intent to apply and to be included in the Limited Submission selection process.

What is the first step in the process?

A Notice of Intent must be submitted to grantlab@nova.edu.

How do I know if an opportunity is a Limited Submission?

This information is specified in the grant guidelines.  In addition, this information is available on the Funding Alerts web page (https://www.nova.edu/portal/grantlab/funding-alerts/index.html) and the Limited Submission Opportunities dropdown (http://www.nova.edu/rtt/limited-submissions.html).

If you are interested in applying for any of the Limited Submission opportunities listed, or if you find a funding opportunity that is not on the list that is a Limited Submission opportunity, please contact grantlab@nova.edu to declare your intent to apply and to be included in the Limited Submission selection process.

If more than one Notice of Intent is received, what happens next?

The prospective applicants will be notified and if all interested parties still want to apply for the Limited Submission opportunity, a pre-proposal will be required.  The Limited Submission Review Committee will be convened to determine which proposal will move forward as NSU’s application to the funding agency.

What happens if I am selected to submit the Limited Submission but subsequently am unable to do so?

When you submit your pre-proposal to NSU’s Office of Translational Research and Economic Development, you are making a commitment, if selected, to submit your proposal to the funding agency prior to their deadline. Once you have been notified that you have been selected to submit this Limited Submission opportunity, you have five business days to notify grantlab@nova.edu if you are unable to submit.

Suppose I identify a Limited Submission opportunity on my own.

You must still go through the NSU Limited Submission process. Please notify grantlab@nova.edu of the Limited Submission opportunity as soon as possible.

When is the internal pre-proposal due?

There is an internal deadline posted on the Limited Submission webpage for the Notice of Intent (NOI). If multiple NOIs are received, applicants will be apprised of the deadline for the pre-proposal submission in a timely manner.

I missed the Notice of Intent internal deadline. Can I still apply?

The submission of the Notice of Intent is mandatory. If you missed the deadline, you should contact grantlab@nova.edu immediately. Contacting the grant lab does not automatically mean you will be granted an extension of the deadline.

If I am not selected, can I get feedback on my pre-proposal from the LS Review Committee?

All applicants will receive feedback on pre-proposals via email regardless of whether or not they were chosen by the committee.

1. Multi-Channel Communication of Limited Submission Funding Opportunities

  1. Limited Submissions (LS) Webpage (http://www.nova.edu/rtt/limited-submissions.html) – a published list of all known LS opportunities.  If faculty find an LS opportunity not listed on the LS webpage, they should contact Grant Writing Lab (GWL) at grantlab@nova.edu immediately so the opportunity can be added.
  2. Funding Alerts Webpage (https://www.nova.edu/portal/grantlab/funding-alerts/index.html) – lists funding opportunities for NSU investigators, including LS opportunities
  3. Funding Alerts listserv – weekly email blasts of funding opportunities for NSU investigators, including LS opportunities
  4. Targeted emails to deans, department chairs, and faculty

2. Internal Selection Process

  1. Internal Notice of Intent due by internal deadline determined by GWL
  2. Each applicant receives a list of all potential applicants and their project titles.
  3. Applicants can choose to move forward, withdraw, or form collaborations.
  4. If internal competition is necessary, Selection Committee identified (3 members from standing committee)
  5. Pre-proposals due by deadline determined by GWL (if time is too short between internal deadline and sponsor deadline, decision can be made based on Notice of Intent)
  6. Selection Committee selects
  7. All candidates will be notified of the results via email. Reviewers’ comments will be provided whenever possible.  Throughout this process, the anonymity of the reviewers will be maintained.
  8. Once a faculty member is selected to apply for a limited submission opportunity, s/he has the responsibility to submit a timely application.  Should a candidate decide to not submit an application, s/he needs to inform GWL via email in within 5 business days of selection notification.  If the selected applicant withdraws her/his proposal, the applicant who received the next highest ranking will be notified that s/he may submit a proposal.

3. Limited Submission Internal Notice of Intent (NOI) Format

  1. The sole purpose of the Internal NOI is to determine whether an internal competition is necessary.  NOI should include a project title and names of investigators.

4. Limited Submission Internal Pre-Proposal Format

Unless otherwise noted in the announcement on the NSU Funding Alerts or Limited Submission webpage, internal pre-proposals will include:
  • Cover Page
    • Name of Sponsor, name of Grant Opportunity
    • Title of Proposed Project
    • Names, titles, affiliations of PI and co-PIs
  • 1 page project description.  Pay close attention to the program announcement and clearly address the sponsor’s objectives and funding criteria.
  • Biosketch or CV of PI (4-page maximum)
  • Expected amount of funding requested with a brief description of how monies will be spent
 

5. Deadlines

Deadlines for internal Notices of Intent will be established as soon as the solicitation for a limited submission funding opportunity becomes available.  The deadlines will be posted on the NSU limited submission webpage (http://www.nova.edu/rtt/limited-submissions.html) and may be announced via targeted e-mails to appropriate research deans, department heads, and center directors for distribution as the college or center sees fit.

Faculty should notify grantlab@nova.edu immediately in the event they intend to submit to a limited submission opportunity that has not already been identified/posted on the NSU limited submission webpage.  The stated process will then be initiated, time permitting.

In rare instances, such as when a sponsor’s deadline is too short to allow the above process to take place, the TRED VP may allow an interested participant to move forward without the full internal review process based on a “first to notify” basis. 

 

Note: If you have any questions about the process, please email grantlab@nova.edu

Please Note

The department of Translational Research and Economic Development may determine that certain Limited Submission opportunities are deemed as critically important to the research mission of NSU; in such cases relevant teams may be strategically identified by the Vice President.
