How Are You Doing with Those Grant Submission New Year’s Resolutions?
National Institutes of Health Office of Extramural Research Mike Lauer June 30, 2016
Back inJanuary we talked about whether there is an advantage to working up to the last minute and submitting your grant application on the deadline. From the perspective of review outcomes, there was no advantage. In fact, applications submitted at the last minute seemed somewhat less likely to be discussed.
Need another reason to apply early (by early we mean days, not hours, before a deadline)? We still see applications that fail to be completed in time for the due date, and as a result have to wait another round to be considered for funding!
