The recently-released CPRIT Individual Investigator Awards (IIA) do not limit the number of applications submitted per institution. You may not, however, apply to more than one IIA award program during the current cycle, as per the instructions.
Also, per CPRIT as of May 1, 2015:
Internal Review Process
From time to time, granting agencies and foundations will restrict the number of proposals they will accept from any one institution. The Executive Vice President for Academic & Research Affairs (EVPARA) has instituted the following Limited Submission pre-application process for such programs:
Please note that we make every effort to identify and post limited submission competitions on this web site as they become available. If you become aware of an limited opportunity that is not listed below, please send an email to Deanne Hernandez with the pertinent information.
*UPDATED* If a faculty member identifies a funding opportunity for which UTHealth is only allowed a limited number of applications, he/she should contact Deanne Hernandez in the Office of Academic and Research Affairs (ARA) as soon as possible (713-500-3192).
The Pew Charitable Trust has invited UTHealth to nominate one promising junior faculty candidate to its 2016 Pew Scholar in the Biomedical Sciences program. Awards provide funding to young investigators of outstanding promise in science relevant to the advancement of human health.
Eligibility (from the Pew Trust directions)
The ideal candidates are outstanding individuals who are in their first few years of their appointment at the assistant professor level. A select list of eligibility criteria include:
Interested and eligible faculty members should first discuss this opportunity with their department chairs who are responsible for nominating candidates, with approval from the Dean. Chairs’ nominating letters should thus state explicitly that the nomination is approved by the Dean or designee.
Please submit pre-applications electronically to Deanne Hernandez at Deanne.M.Hernandez@uth.tmc.edu with the subject line to read “Pew Scholar Nomination.” The pre-application should be a single PDF document with the information below in the indicated order:
The deadline for receipt is Friday, June 12, 2015. An internal selection committee comprised of notable UTHealth scientists will convene to review all pre-applications and select UTHealth's 2016 nominee.
UTHealth is limited to one nomination under the terms of this notice. This is an extremely competitive and prestigious award and institutions typically nominate faculty members who are the most highly competitive as starting assistant professors by national norms.
Key dates are as follows:

The goal of the NIMHD Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) Program is to promote and support collaborative interventions that involve all relevant partners in the translational research process – planning, implementing, evaluating and disseminating community level interventions aimed at improving health and addressing health disparities.
The rationale for this program is two-fold: (1) To address the need for improved transdisciplinary and intervention research methods and approaches addressing health disparities; and (2) To strengthen the science of community engagement in addressing health disparities in socially disadvantaged population groups.
Please submit pre-applications electronically to Deanne Hernandez at Deanne.M.Hernandez@uth.tmc.edu with the subject line to read “Advancing Health Disparities.” The pre-application should be a single PDF document with the information below in the indicated order:
The deadline for receipt is Friday, May 29, 2015. Should more than one investigator wish to apply, an internal selection committee comprised of notable UTHealth scientists will review all pre-applications and select UTHealth's applicant.
