Limited Submission Program (LSP): This funding opportunity and the Limited Submission Program (LSP) is open to all Texas A&M University faculty and principal investigators who meet the eligibility requirements. Texas A&M and The Texas A&M University System agencies jointly administer this process to select the proposal(s) that will be submitted to the sponsor in response to this solicitation.

 

Institutional Eligibility:  We accept nominations from top schools globally. A discriminating filter on the university side will help to protect the valuable time of your most talented young faculty who might apply for this competitive award. For that reason we invite many top universities to nominate one candidate. Of course, if your university is so fortunate as to have two world-leading early career professors in the area of this call, please do nominate both. We do not restrict nominations other than by the published criteria, and we will with great appreciation consider all nominations.

 

PI Eligibility:  The titles accorded to faculty on the path to full professor can vary. Typically, assistant professor is the first "tenure-track" position at U.S. and Canadian universities. Consequently, it is usually the case that research associates, research professors, adjunct professors, etc. are not eligible for this award.

 

The proposal will be prepared and submitted by Sponsored Research Services (SRS).

 

Proposal Limit: One nomination, but, if your university is so fortunate as to have two world-leading early career professors in the area of this call, please do nominate both.
