Limited Submission Opportunities

Certain funding organizations limit the number of proposals that UH Mānoa can submit for a particular extramural research opportunity.

The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research oversees the internal selection process to identify the strongest candidates for these limited submission opportunities.

The OVCR is responsible for coordinating the timely review of internal candidates and for notifying all applicants of the outcomes. Applicants will be asked to submit pre-proposal information to assist in the selection process.

The OVCR monitors the recurring funding opportunities that limit the number of applications per application cycle. The below list is provided as a service to PIs but is not comprehensive; if you are aware of an upcoming opportunity that limits the number of applicants but is not listed, please notify the OVCR by emailing
