Limited Submission Proposal Opportunities

Internal submission deadlines are determined by the Vice President for Research office. To allow enough lead time to develop a proposal, generally the internal deadline will be set at four weeks prior to the letter of intent date, or six weeks prior to the submission deadline—whichever comes first. A firm internal deadline date will be posted below as programs become known. See Limited Submission Program Guidelines for campus procedures.

Note: Due to the number of programs, it is not possible to provide an all-inclusive list. Pre-award questions not addressed or opportunities not listed may be directed to the Vice President for Research office at 487-1115 or 487-3043 (or email lims-l@mtu.edu).
