However, if you become aware of a funding opportunity with limited submission requirements that is not listed, please contact the Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development (OVPRED) staff with the program title, due date and the program's URL.

Some expired internal deadlines may still be open for applications if fewer than the eligible number of preliminary applications were received and the sponsor's deadline has not passed. Contact OVPRED staff to determine if an opportunity is still available.
