Limited Submissions

For solicitations with a regular and highly competitive level of submission activity within WVU, such the National Science Foundation's Major Research Instrumentation program, the Research Office will organize a campus-wide competitive review process using a panel of either internal or external reviewers.

Many agencies limit the number of proposals from a single academic institution. For agencies for which there are typically only a few interested investigators at WVU who would like to submit to the same opportunity, it is the policy of the Office of Research to require colleges that have multiple submissions select one proposal to advance. If proposals appear from more than one college, the Office of Research will perform an internal review to select the proposal to advance.
