Important Notice on No Cost Extensions

Margaux | June 9th, 2014

In the past, no cost extensions have been commonplace in extramural research; however, please note that as funding is becoming harder to acquire, agencies are looking much closer at no cost extension requests.

In the past week OSP has had two requests for second extensions on projects denied by the funding agencies, one by NIH and the other by USDA. While there are valid reasons for requesting an extension or even a second one, agencies are scrutinizing second requests very closely and these requests require much more detail.
