Spring 2023 – Foundation Sponsored Limited Submission Opportunities
The University of Utah Foundation Relations team manages several limited submission opportunities sponsored by various Foundations each year. Foundations Limited Submissions are reviewed by a Foundations LSO Committee that selects applications most likely to:
- Perpetuate success for the University;
- Assist the selected faculty member in advancing their research; and
- Meet the goals and expectations of the sponsor
Currently available Foundations Limited Submissions are listed below, with links to the InfoReady internal competition for each program. Interested faculty members must apply to the internal competition and be selected by the LSO Committee for each program.

|Fall 2023 Funding Opportunities
W.M. Keck Foundation
June 20, 2023
The Office of the Vice President for Research is seeking interdisciplinary and transformative project concepts for the W. M. Keck Foundation. Projects of particular appeal to the foundation involve basic science research (medical research or science and engineering) that demonstrate a high level of risk due to unconventional approaches, or by challenging the prevailing paradigm; have the potential for transformative impact, such as the founding of a new field of research, the enabling of observations not previously possible, or the altered perception of a previously intractable problem; do not focus on clinical or translational research, treatment trials or research for the sole purpose of drug development; and fall outside the mission of public funding agencies. Funding requests are generally $1,000,000-$1,400,000 in direct costs over three years.
