Deadlines and process...
Deadline for receipt of applications for each new academic year is the last Friday in March.
When available, this section indicates the deadlines for applications to the funding agency which will
be stated in terms of the date(s) or between what dates the application should be received.
When not available, applicants should contact the funding agency for deadline information.
Range of Approval/Disapproval Time
Notification to successful and rejected applicants is made no later than 6 months after deadline for receipt of application.
Students must be given a fair summary of the rights and liabilities of student applicants prior to application. This summary is included in the application packet. Applications are available directly from the program up to 2 weeks before the application deadline. This program is excluded from coverage under E.O. 12372.
This section indicates whether any prior coordination or approval is required with governmental or nongovernmental units
prior to the submission of a formal application to the federal funding agency.
In some cases, there are no provisions for appeal. Where applicable, this section discusses appeal procedures or allowable rework time for resubmission
of applications to be processed by the funding agency. Appeal procedures vary with individual programs and are either listed in this section or
applicants are referred to appeal procedures documented in the relevant Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).
Renewal applications are not necessary for students in compliance; contracts may be multi-year funded through graduation (1 to 4 years) from the respective fiscal year appropriation, if the applicant signs the contract through the graduation date.
In some instances, renewal procedures may be the same as for the application procedure, e.g., for projects of a non-continuing nature renewals will be treated as new, competing applications; for projects of an ongoing nature, renewals may be given annually.
