Limited Submission Opportunities
In Limited Submission opportunities, the sponsor restricts the number of applications or proposals an institution can submit. WSU initiates an internal screening process to determine which application(s) will be approved for submission to the sponsor. You must fill out and email firstname.lastname@example.org an application or template to apply for a limited submission opportunity.
To receive an email notification of the limited submission programs, please sign up for our Limited Submission ListServ.
