5.7 - Restrictions on Multiple Submissions to Sponsors

Some funding sources formally limit or informally discourage the submission of multiple applications from a single institution. In such instances, when UM faculty or staff prepare competing grant applications, UM will approve the submission of only the number of applications specified by the sponsor. Faculty and staff are therefore encouraged to notify the Director of Research or a Program Development Specialist in the ORSP as soon as possible of their intent to submit a grant application in those instances in which the university is limited in the number of submissions. The ORSP will work with the appropriate UM officials (e.g., department chairs, deans, directors) to determine a procedure for selecting the proposals that will be submitted by the institution.
