Many funding agencies issue requests for proposals that limit the number of applications they will accept from an institution. The manner in which sponsors limit applications varies, but usually consists of one or more of the following: limiting the number of proposals which may be submitted; limiting the type of institutions that can apply; and/or limiting PIs by stage of career.

Texas A&M University, working in partnership with The Texas A&M University System research agencies, has established a process to identify limited submission opportunities and internally select applicants to submit full proposals in response to a particular program.



The Division of Research (DOR) identifies limited submission proposal funding opportunities through internet searches, web services and historical opportunities. PIs are encouraged to notify the DOR if they find funding opportunities that may fall into this category.



Email announcements are sent to research deans, department heads and sponsored research offices on campus including a link to the sponsor’s website for full details of the opportunity. The DOR will also post the announcement to the limited submissions page on the Division of Research website. The announcement includes the following information: URL for sponsor’s full announcement; institutional eligibility; PI eligibility restrictions (if applicable); deadline for required internal e-mail of intent to submit to the internal selection process; internal proposal deadline; target date for notification to applicants of the results of the internal competition; and the external deadline for submission to sponsor.


Internal Proposal Submission, Review, and Selection

A date is established for an email of intent to be sent to the DOR limited submissions email box.

An internal proposal must be submitted electronically using e-proposal, the on-line application system. NOTE: Be prepared to upload a one-three page research plan summary, two-page bio sketch, and budget. This site is password protected. Texas A&M faculty may use their NetID and password to access the system. If you do not have a NetID, click on "signup," fill in the pertinent information and an account will be created for you.

If you have any questions about the limited submission process or the e-proposal system, please contact Shelly Martin at or 979.862.2233.

Once the selection committee determines which PI(s) will go forward with a full proposal to the sponsor, all internal applicants, and the limited submission liaison at Sponsored Research Services (SRS), are informed of the outcome.


Full Proposal Submission

The principal investigator should contact the SRS for assistance in the preparation and submission of the full proposal to the sponsor.



2017 - 2011


Limited Submission Proposal Opportunities

Note: Please be aware that the list is not comprehensive. Anyone who wishes to apply to a limited submission RFP that is not posted on this website should contact Shelly Martin at or 979.862.2233. The guidelines will be reviewed and an appropriate internal deadline will be established and posted to the website.
