No-Cost Extensions


GuidelinesBack to Top

  • No-cost extensions can be granted by a sponsor to allow project directors more time to meet their objectives.
  • A no-cost extension must be requested before the end date of an award.
  • Submit requests to the CALS Research Division at least one month before the end of an award (see request process guidance below).
  • If a request is made less than thirty days before an award ends, a Provisional Request for Extension should be filed. A provisional request will allow an account to stay open in case the extension is not formally granted before the end of an award.
