No-Cost Extensions

No-Cost Extensions can be granted by a sponsor to allow project directors more time to meet their objectives. A no-cost extension must be requested in advance of the end date of the award based on agency requirements.

The CALS Research Division provides more detailed information on No-Cost Extension guidelines, the request process and resources at their No-Cost Extensions page.  CALS also has a Microsoft Word No-Cost Extension Request Template available.
