Selecting a funding source involves finding a sponsor with goals that align with a given research project and finding and opportunity for which the PI is eligible to pursue. It is important to understand different types of funding sources and their individual guidelines.
Both sponsored and gift-funded activities are externally-supported projects, and the classification of funding as "gift" or "sponsored" will affect, among other things, the way the University accounts for the funds, assesses F&A (indirect) costs, and reports on the use of the funds to the sponsor or donor.
Limited Submissions are grant opportunities that restrict the number of applications from qualified institutions. In these cases, UTHealth will post opportunities on this page as they become available and specify the requirements needed to launch an internal competition to select the university's applicant(s).
Michael R. Blackburn, PhD, Executive Vice President & Chief Academic Officer, will establish ad hoc internal review committees as needed based upon the nature of the RFA and the pre-applications received so as to ensure expertise and minimize conflicts of interest.
If an investigator identifies a limited opportunity that is not posted on this page, he or she should contact Deanne Hernandez via email to express interest. Opportunities are considered first-come, first-served if the sponsor deadline is less than two months' away. If the deadline is more than two months' away, an internal competition will launch.
