Internal Selections

Internal selections at Washington University in St. Louis are held to determine which faculty member from the university can submit an application for limited competition funding opportunities.

“Limited selection” describes funding opportunities in which the external sponsor limits the number of applications that can be submitted by a single institution. If the number of faculty who wish to apply is fewer than the number of applications allowed, an internal selection is not required. If the number of faculty who wish to apply exceeds the number of applications allowed, a faculty committee convened by the vice chancellor for research reviews the proposals to identify the applicants authorized to submit a proposal.

Deadlines for internal selections are typically six to 12 weeks prior to the sponsor deadline.
