Fall 2022 Foundation-Sponsored Limited Submission Opportunities

The University of Utah Foundation Relations team manages several 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

The remaining Fall 2022 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.

The Office of the Vice President for Research is seeking interdisciplinary and transformative project concepts for the W. M. Keck Foundation. Keck seeks to benefit humanity by supporting basic science projects in two specific areas (1) medical research and (2) science and engineering, that are distinctive and novel in their approach, question the prevailing paradigm, or have the potential to break open new territory in a field. In the past, funding requests have been capped at $1,000,000 in direct costs over three years. While larger budget requests are now allowed, most awards are $1M-$1.3M. Award extensions are not allowed. The foundation prefers projects that are not too clinical or too applied, not related to therapeutics, not disease-specific, and not a “logical next step” in research. The foundation also prefers to fund projects for which federal funding is not readily available.
