Limited Submissions

Limited Submissions are extramural funding opportunities that limit the number applications submitted per institution. Faculty that are interested in applying for a limited submission that is not posted on InfoReady must contact the Office of the Vice President for Research to verify their eligibility and ensure that another application has not been selected to submit. Failure to comply with this internal submission process may lead to the automatic rejection of a proposal selected by the University of Utah.

NEI Center Core Grant for Vision Research
Internal Deadline: July 31, 2019
External Deadline: September 18, 2019

The NEI Center Core Grant for Vision Research combines three or more Resource and/or Service Cores for a group of R01 investigators to enhance their research, consolidate resources, avoid duplication of efforts, and/or contribute to cost effectiveness by providing a service with lower costs or higher quality than could be attempted for independent projects by several individual Program Directors/Principal Investigators (PD(s)/PI(s)). Shared resources and facilities that are accessible to a group of independently funded investigators lead to greater productivity for the separate projects and can provide instrumentation and facilities that are too costly to be maintained by an individual investigator. The design and purpose of each Center Core may vary in how it serves its users. This program is designed to enhance an institution's environment and capability to conduct vision research and to facilitate collaborative studies of the visual system and its disorders.

NIH Director’s Early Independence Awards
Internal Deadline: August 2, 2019
External Deadline: September 13, 2019

The NIH Director’s Early Independence Awards supports exceptional investigators who wish to pursue independent research essentially after completion of their terminal doctoral/research degree or end of post-graduate clinical training, thereby forgoing the traditional post-doctoral training period and accelerating their entry into an independent research career. For the program to support the best possible researchers and research, applications are sought which reflect the full diversity of the research workforce. Individuals from diverse backgrounds and from the full spectrum of eligible institutions in all geographic locations are strongly encouraged to apply to this Funding Opportunity Announcement. In addition, applications in all topics relevant to the broad mission of NIH are welcome, including, but not limited to, topics in the behavioral, social, biomedical, applied, and formal sciences and topics that may involve basic, translational, or clinical research. The NIH Director's Early Independence Award is a component of the High-Risk, High-Reward Research program of the NIH Common Fund.

NEH Summer Stipends
Internal Deadline: August 5, 2019
External Deadline: September 26, 2019

The NEH Summer Stipends program aims to stimulate new research in the humanities and its publication. It provides small awards to individuals pursuing advanced research that is of value to humanities scholars, general audiences, or both. Supports projects at any stage of development, but most especially early-stage research and late-stage writing in which small awards are most effective. The Stipends also further the NEH’s commitment to diversity and inclusion in the humanities by encouraging applications from independent scholars and faculty at Hispanic Serving Institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, tribal colleges and universities, and community colleges.

Pac-12 Student-Athlete Health and Well-Being Grant Program
Internal Deadline: August 6, 2019
External Deadline: October 1, 2019

The Pac-12 Student-Athlete Health and Well-Being Grant Program is a collective effort between the conference and our member universities to find ways to reduce injuries, share current best practices and latest studies, and conduct research to uncover new ways to keep student-athletes as safe as possible. Student-athlete health and safety is paramount to the Pac-12 and the Conference has taken a proactive approach to ensure the safety of its student-athletes. This initiative harnesses the full resources of the Pac-12's research institutions for the benefit of our student-athletes, and includes a research grant program, a Brain Trauma Task Force, and an annual Student-Athlete Health Conference.

Innovations in Graduate Education Program
Internal Deadline: August 6, 2019
External Deadline: October 1, 2019

The Innovations in Graduate Education (IGE) Program is designed to encourage the development and implementation of bold, new, and potentially transformative approaches to STEM graduate education training. The program seeks proposals that explore ways for graduate students in research-based master’s and doctoral degree programs to develop the skills, knowledge, and competencies needed to pursue a range of STEM careers. IGE focuses on projects aimed at piloting, testing, and validating innovative and potentially transformative approaches to graduate education. IGE projects are intended to generate the knowledge required for their customization, implementation, and broader adoption. The program supports testing of novel models or activities with high potential to enrich and extend the knowledge base on effective graduate education approaches.

Greenwall Foundation Faculty Scholars in Bioethics
Internal application deadline: August 23, 2019
External application deadline: late-September, 2019

The Greenwall Faculty Scholars Program in Bioethics is a career development award to enable junior faculty members to carry out innovative bioethics research. It supports research that goes beyond current work in bioethics to help resolve pressing ethical issues in clinical care, biomedical research, and public policy, and creates a community that enhances future bioethics research by Scholars and Alumni/ae.

Each year, the U can nominate 2 faculty members for consideration. The Foundation selects approximately three Greenwall Faculty Scholars to receive 50 percent salary support for three years to enable them to develop their research program.

Johnson and Johnson WiSTEM2D Scholars Award Program
Internal application deadline: August 23, 2019
External application deadline: late October, 2019

The Johnson and Johnson WiSTEM2D Scholars Award Program will help develop female leaders and support innovations in the STEM2D disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math, Manufacturing, and Design) by funding six women at critical points in their careers through a Scholar's Award. Award Amount: $150,000 ($50,000 per year for three years).

Six awards will be made in 2019 with the aim to fund one woman per areas of STEM2D concentration in the early career stages where they have concluded their advanced degree training but are not at the level of tenure in their accredited university or design school institutions. The early-career support is aimed to be a catalyst for women to become leaders in their organizations and fields. The program will help build a larger pool of highly-trained researchers to meet the growing needs of academia and industry.
