Certain funding organizations limit the number of proposals that UH Mānoa can submit for a particular extramural research opportunity.
The Office of the Vice Provost for Research and Scholarship (OVPRS) oversees the internal selection process to identify the strongest candidates for these limited submission opportunities.
The OVPRS is responsible for coordinating the timely review of internal candidates and for notifying all applicants of the outcomes. Applicants will be asked to submit pre-proposal information to assist in the selection process using the InfoReady Review portal.
The OVPRS monitors the recurring funding opportunities that limit the number of applications per application cycle. The list is provided on the front page of the InfoReady Review portal as a service to PIs but is not comprehensive; if you are aware of an upcoming opportunity that limits the number of applicants but is not listed, please notify the OVPRS by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
The OVPRS will continue to email LSO announcements to appropriate colleges/units during the transition to the InfoReady platform.
Disclaimer on LSO approvals
The VPRS or AVPRS may approve certain LSO requests on a first-come-first serve basis where circumstances prevent an internal competition from being held, such as, but not limited to less than 20 working days to the agency submission deadline, or a LSO with very specific requirements on eligibility where they may be only one candidate. Proposals received by the OVPRS for unannounced LSO’s after UHM has reached its maximum number of submissions will be rejected and cannot be submitted.
