The NIH Center for Scientific Review developed this resource to help clarify the application process, highlighting institution- and investigator-specific information, including key actions that must be taken well in advance of application submission.
Don’t forget that when an application due date falls on a weekend or federal holiday, the due date shifts to the next business day, according to our submission policies. Therefore, the standard July 5, 2020 R01/U01 due date moves to Monday, July 6, 2020.
We just announced three important updates to our administrative supplement submission policies: effective immediately, NIH will begin accepting administrative supplement applications for multi-project awards electronically; and effective July 25, 2020, all supplement applications to existing single and multi-project awards must be submitted electronically and the streamlined submission method through the eRA Commons will be discontinued and replaced.
With the winter season upon us, remember that when a due date falls on a weekend, Federal holiday, or when Washington, D.C.-area Federal offices close (due to severe weather, for example), the application deadline is automatically extended to the next business day.
