A no-cost extension provides Principal Investigators with more time to carry out a project – but not more funding. This request should be made before the end of an award’s activity period.
Request a No-Cost Extension
A Principal Investigator who would like to request a no-cost extension should contact Law’s grant administrator for assistance. Many federal awards allow a first-time no-cost extension that can be automatically approved by the Sponsored Projects Office.
All other requests will require a letter to the sponsor. This request should be sent by the Principle Investigator/Faculty named on the grant.
Keeping the Sponsored Projects Office in the loop with these requests ensures that award records will be properly updated and that Contracts and Grants Accounting won’t close an award too early.
