Limited Competitions

 

Limited Competitions

The Office of Proposal Development is responsible for most Limited Competitions. However, some limited competitions are handled by the Deans' or the Provost's Office. Candidates are chosen based on the results of an internal faculty review panel. Please contact our office with any questions.
 
WHAT IS A LIMITED COMPETITION?

A number of sponsors, both private and federal, restrict the number of individuals or applications that may be submitted by the University.

HOW ARE LIMITED COMPETITIONS ANNOUNCED?

Announcements are made by the OPD_OVPR email to Chairs, Deans and Center Directors for onward transmission to their respective faculty.  You can also join our OPD Google Group to receive all OPD messages directly.

WHAT ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF ANNUAL LIMITED COMPETITIONS?

Examples include NSF's Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) Program, the Searle Scholars Program, and the Pew Scholars Program in the Biomedical Sciences.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS? WHAT DO I NEED TO SUBMIT TO BE CONSIDERED FOR THE SELECTED APPLICATION TO A LIMITED COMPETION?

The selection of nominees to these programs is coordinated by the Office of Proposal Development.

In these cases the OPD will organize an internal competition for which potential applicants will be asked to submit a pre-proposal outlining the substance, budget, and other factors (matching funds, participating institutions, etc.) in support of their application.

In cases where the University is asked to nominate candidates for an award or fellowship, the Vice President’s Office will contact appropriate department chairs with a request to submit a dossier on behalf of qualified faculty for consideration as institutional nominees.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I BECOME AWARE OF A PROGRAM WHICH LIMITS THE INSTITUTIONAL NOMINATIONS OR APPLICATIONS?

Please contact the Office of Proposal Development at 631-632-1976  or OPD_OVPR@stonybrook.edu. A number of sponsors, both private and federal, restrict the number of individuals or applications that may be submitted by the University.
