Guidelines for Internal Screening of Applications for Limited Submissions

When there are limitations or restrictions on the number of applications that can be submitted by an institution, the following general internal screening process will take place. Joint review may be required between UConn and the UConn Health Center.

Notification of Intent to Submit must be completed and submitted online for all limited submission programs.

If an internal competition is scheduled or announced, pre-proposals will be submitted to Larisa Zagorski in electronic format as ONE .pdf document and will include:

    1. Sponsor
    2. Name of program

  5. Optional maximum two-page attachment containing any additional relevant information. For example, if a proposal is a resubmission, a summary of available comments/reviews can be attached
