Limited competitions are coordinated by the Office of Research Development. Please direct inquiries to Jason Charland, Director of the Office of Research Development, at 581- 2461, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Before submitting a pre-proposal for a limited competition, please review the limited competitions policy, which establishes the procedure to be followed when a sponsor limits the number of proposals that may be submitted by any one institution in response to a solicitation. Current limited competitions are noted in the registry below. If you are interested in a limited competition not currently on the registry, please contact Jason Charland. To compete in a limited competition please submit a notice of intent through PARS and complete the pre-proposal application by the pre-proposal deadline. The pre-proposal competition will include committee review, after which candidates will be notified if they are continuing to the full proposal submission.

|NSF MRI||10/26/18||11/19/2018||01/22/2019||The Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) Program serves to increase access to multi-user scientific and engineering instrumentation for research and research training in our Nation’s institutions of higher education and not-for-profit scientific/engineering research organizations. An MRI award supports the acquisition or development of a multi-user research instrument that is, in general, too costly and/or not appropriate for support through other NSF programs.||PARS NOI must be submitted by the NOI deadline. If more PIs submit an NOI than the competition allows, an internal competition will be held and a pre-application will be required. Be sure to select the “limited competition” box when submitting the NOI.||In the event an internal competition is required, information will be listed here. PIs who submitted an NOI will be notified via email if they need to submit a pre-application. Contact email@example.com with questions.|
