A Limited Submission Opportunity (LSO) is a funding opportunity in which the sponsor sets an institutional limit for the number of proposals it will accept. These opportunities may be from federal sponsors, state sponsors, corporations, or foundations. In order to participate in an LSO, Syracuse University must organize to submit our most competitive proposal(s). This requires an internal competition and institutional peer review.
This process does not include opportunities which are limited at the individual PI or department level. Additionally, this process does not address any student programs.
The Office of Proposal Support Services (OPSS) will list limited submission opportunities on the Syracuse University Application Portal (SUAP), post each LSO to this web page, and e-mail LSO notices to appropriate deans, department chairs, and faculty. Additionally, active LSOs will be included in the monthly Office of Research newsletter. If you do not currently receive the newsletter, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request your addition to the distribution list.
If you are interested in applying to an opportunity that is not posted on the portal and Limited Submission web page, please email the solicitation details to LimitedSubmissions@syr.edu. OPSS staff will evaluate the solicitation and determine how to proceed.
All interested applicants should review the full Syracuse University process for limited submission funding opportunities provided below.
