Limited Submission Opportunities

Currently Open Limited-Submission Competitions

Limited Submissions - Internal Deadlines

Because an increasing number of extramural programs limit the number of applications an institution may submit, the University of Kentucky has established an internal selection procedure for the programs listed below. Click the links for the most recent information on each program.

*** Limited-Submission programs that are targeted toward a specific department or college are also included in the complete list but are coordinated at the departmental or college level. ***

If you identify a program not listed that limits submissions, or if you have questions about a particular program, please contact PDO to ensure that your application is appropriately considered (257-2861 or PDO@uky.edu).
