Foundation Sponsored Limited Submissions

The University of Utah Foundation Relations team manages a number limited submission opportunities sponsored by various Foundations each year. Foundations Limited Submissions are reviewed by a Foundations LSO Committee that selects applications most likely to:  

  • Perpetuate success for the University;  
  • Assist the selected faculty member in advancing their research; and 
  • Meet the goals and expectations of the sponsor

All upcoming Foundations Limited Submissions are listed below, with links to the InfoReady internal competition for each program. Interested faculty members must apply to the internal competition and be selected by the LSO Committee for each program. Please contact Daniel Hadley if you have questions about applying for an opportunity listed below. Additional foundations funding opportunities can be found on the foundation relations website.
