Proposal Submission Deadlines: NIH & NSF

NIH

Standard Due Dates for Competing Applications

General Information

  • Grant applications and associated documents (e.g., reference letters) are due by 5:00 PM local time of application organization on the specified due date.
    • When a standard submission date falls on a weekend or federal holiday, the application deadline is automatically extended to the next business day.  If extension causes the submission deadline to shift beyond the expiration date of the funding opportunity announcement, a warning may be generated by Grants.gov - this warning will NOT prevent processing of application through Grants.gov
  • Check the funding opportunity announcement (FOA) for due date information.
  • If the FOA says "standard dates apply", refer to the table below using the activity code specified in the title of the FOA.
  • Note that renewal/resubmission/revision applications may have different due dates than new applications. Read the table carefully.
  • The AIDS and AIDS-related dates apply to all activity codes.
