NIH Simplifies Policy for Late Applications

The National Institutes of Health has simplified the NIH policy for late application submission. Effective for applications submitted for due dates on or after January 25, 2015, there is a two-week window of consideration after the application due date, during which time NIH might consider accepting a late application.

NIH provides more details in the December 17 NIH Guide Notice, Simplifying the NIH Policy for Late Application Submission (NOT-OD-15-039). The guidance includes examples of reasons why late applications might be or will not be accepted.
