UMMS Competition Space
UMMS Competition Space is an innovative online platform that streamlines the process of finding, and applying for, funding opportunities through the U-M Medical School.
The following funding opportunities will now be posted, and can be applied for, through UMMS Competition Space:
- Bridging Support
- External Limited Submissions

Competition Space is updated regularly by the UMMS Office of Research as well as centers and institutes affiliated with the Medical School offering pilot program funding opportunities for biomedical research.

All future internal funding opportunities, including external non-federal limited submission announcements, will also be posted through UMMS Competition Space.
