  Limited Submissions

Many sponsors have programs that allow only a limited number of nominations or proposal submissions from any one institution. For each limited submission solicitation, USC will have an internal competition to select the most competitive candidate to submit a proposal. If you plan to submit a proposal for consideration, your proposal submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research, via Research and Grant Development.
