Breakout Room Activity:

Take ten minutes in your group to discuss the list of advice below  when trying to renew a grant: 

Checklist of advice when renewing your grant: 

  • Does the renewal grant have any updated or new requirements?    
  • What are the current pay lines for the specific agency and how has that changed since your last submission? 
  • If you have the choice, should you request the same study section? 
  • How many specific aims do you have or need? Do you need preliminary data for all aims?
  • What is your timeline for submission (taking into consideration that it would be 1 year at the earliest from submission to funding)?
  • Should you obtain a no-cost extension for your current grant before submitting the renewal?
  • How can you extend the relevance and significance of your current grant for a renewal?
