Throughout the year, the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research (OVCR) administrates several limited campus competitions. These competitions are required because several private foundations and national governmental agencies only allow a limited number of nominees from invited institutions, like CU. The review process is conducted by an elite group of faculty who were invited by the Vice Chancellor for Research to serve on the OVCR Review Board. Based on their evaluations, nominees are selected to compete for these limited awards.
