Recurring Limited Submission Opportunities

Funding agencies (sponsors) may place limits on the number of letters of intent or proposals that any one university may submit in response to a funding opportunity announcement (commonly referred to as Request for Proposals – RFP). The following policy is designed to support an equitable review process while preventing any potential disqualification of submissions by Auburn University due to more than the allowed number of applications being submitted.

Below is a table of recurring limited submission RFP’s.  This list does not identify every limited submission opportunity available. Anyone who wishes to apply to a limited submission RFP that is not posted on our website should contact PSFS immediately (currently Tony Ventimiglia at with the opportunity in question and other information outlined in the Limited Submission Policy.
