Throughout the year, the OVCR coordinates numerous Limited Campus Competitions. These competitions are required because many private foundations and federal government agency programs only allow a limited number of nominees from invited institutions, like CU-Boulder. The review process is conducted by a group of faculty who are 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. If you have any questions regarding limited campus competitions, please email Alex Mancero at firstname.lastname@example.org.
