The following funding opportunities require an internal selection process since the University is limited in the number of applicants that are permitted to apply for these awards.  Please check this website for the BSD’s internal deadlines and the application requirements for the internal selection process.  Should you come across a funding opportunity that you do not see listed that appears to be limited, please bring it to our attention by emailing fundingopps@bsd.uchicago.edu.

Important Notice:  New System for Limited Opportunity Submissions

The University is now using InfoReady Review for the majority of limited opportunities.    

What has changed?
Applications for limited opportunity slots will no longer be submitted via email.  For most limited opportunities, PIs will login into InfoReady via their CNET ID and submit an abbreviated Notification of Interest (reflected in the deadlines below). 

In cases where there is no competition, PIs will be notified that they are assigned the internal slot without a pre-proposal or other materials required.  If there is an internal competition, a follow-up proposal will be requested through an InfoReady email notification. 

For more information:

  • InfoReady home page:  view and submit notification of interest for limited opportunities (login with your CNET ID)
  • View the press release announcing the transition to InfoReady

If you have questions or need assistance with InfoReady, please contact Sarah Lain at:  researchdevelopment@uchicago.edu
