Limited Submissions - Some sponsors will limit the number of applications coming from one institution, the Office of Research coordinates this process for UW.  Pre-proposals are due to their office in advance of the sponsor deadline and a committee determines which full UW proposals are approved to be submitted to the sponsor. These proposals usually require an eGC1. CAS Corporate and Foundation Relations is available to support you with pre-proposals to ensure they are internally competitive.
