This list features externally funded grant opportunities that require university coordination because the sponsor has limited the number of applications an institution is allowed to submit. Each posting has a link to sponsor specific information as well as detailed internal submission instructions.

This link includes summary sponsor information, specific instructions for internal submission and contact information for the university office coordinating the nomination process.
Registration is an optional but highly recommended feature. Perhaps you are looking for a wider audience for your proposal idea, or for potential collaborators to work with to create a stronger application. Registration allows applicants to share proposal ideas and post contact information.
Registration also provides information that helps the university office overseeing the nomination to determine the level of coordination needed and guide the review process.
To register (or view registrants), click on the UM Submission Instructions for a specific opportunity, then click on the Register Interest link.
