What are limited solicitations?

Funding opportunities, prize competitions, and award nominations with institutional limits are called limited solicitations. For all opportunities that limit the number of submissions/nominations, Research Development, a unit of the Office of the Vice President for Research (VPR), hosts an internal competition to select which proposal(s) will be submitted for funding and who will be nominated for prizes and awards. Announcements for internal competitions are distributed via the MIT Fund Ops listserv and posted online on the MIT Funding Opportunities webpage. The MIT Funding Opportunities page is the home of the submission portals for each internal competition as well as the home to an archive of internal competitions with passed deadlines. Please reach out to the Research Development team or your RAS CA with any questions.
