NIH (including help desks) will be closed Monday, May 26, 2014 (Memorial Day). If a postmark/submission date falls on a federal holiday, the application deadline is automatically extended to the next business day.
Additionally, as announced earlier, we’ll be upgrading our electronic Research Administration (eRA) systems and taking them offline for the Memorial Day weekend. Therefore, to minimize impact to those applying to due dates falling between May 25 and May 28, 2014, NIH has extended application deadlines to May 29, 2014. See NIH Guide Notice NOT-OD-14-070 for more details.
