UVM's Internal Process

  • When a limited competition is identified, SPA posts it to the Active Limited Competitions list above and sends a campus announcement to the relevant Deans, Directors and Chairs.
  • The campus announcement includes
    • information about the grant program
    • a request for specific information
    • a deadline by which investigators must notify SPA of their intent to apply. 
  • If the number of UVM investigators wishing to apply exceeds the number permitted, the final decision rests with either the Vice President for Research if interest is across colleges, or by the Dean if all applicants are within one college. 
  • SPA informs investigators of the decision and those selected can begin preparing a full proposal at that time. 

Important Caveat

  • Please note that the list of limited competitions compiled by SPA is not exhaustive. 
  • Anyone who wants to apply to a limited competition not posted on the list should contact SPA so we can post the opportunity and conduct the process described above.
