Procedures to nominate or submit an application
when the program's institutional eligibility limits
the number of submissions

Note: The programs identified in the deadline and agency sorts are current and archived programs for special awards/opportunities that place a limit on the number of individuals or proposals the University of Pittsburgh can submit. Some sponsors choose to place a restriction on the total number of nominees/applications submitted per institution, school and/or discipline.

When this limitation is stipulated in their program guidelines, an internal review and selection process is necessary to select the best-qualified candidate(s)/proposal(s) to represent the University.

This selection process begins with Dr. Mark Redfern, Vice Provost for Research, issuing a letter usually to the deans of the applicable schools who then notify appropriate faculty/department chairs of this special opportunity and of the limited eligibility requirement. In Dr. Redfern's letter, another deadline is set for receipt of specific information to be used during the internal university review process. In cases where there are more nominations/applications received than stipulated by the sponsor, an ad hoc committee is convened to make selection recommendations.

If you have any questions about this procedure please contact:
