FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL UM CAMPUSES
Sponsors of external funding can restrict the number of applications they
will accept from a single institution. The Office of the Vice President
for Research has created a Web site providing the University community
a single point of access to information on these funding opportunities.
This site (www.research.umn.edu/opportunities/limited_applications/)
lists current funding opportunities, deadline information, and links to
sponsor announcements and guidelines for internal peer review.
Faculty and staff can use this site to register interest in a
particular opportunity and to access information about internal application
procedures. Registrants must submit an internal application to be considered
for peer review and selection as the official applicant to the sponsor.
Faculty and staff can also use the site to identify potential collaborators
who could work together to submit a stronger application.
Newly announced funding opportunities that restrict the number of applications
will be publicized in Research News Online, with a link to the new site.
Suggestions to improve the site are welcomed and can be sent to Peggy
Sundermeyer at email@example.com.
