Limited Submission

When an organization limits the number of submissions allowed per institution for letters of intent, white papers, or full proposals, UNCW must make steps to ensure the university does not exceed the limit set for the funding opportunity.

InfoReady Review is the competition management system UNCW utilizes for limited submission review. Participating in an internal competition is required in order to submit applications to limited proposal opportunities.

MRI Program

The Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI)

The Major Research Instrumentation (MRI) Program serves to increase access to multi-user scientific and engineering instrumentation for research and research training in our Nation's institutions of higher education and not-for-profit scientific/engineering research organizations. An MRI award supports the acquisition or development of a multi-user research instrument that is, in general, too costly and/or not appropriate for support through other NSF programs.
