Q: What about my Faculty Support Grant (FSG); will the performance period be extended?
A: Yes. ORSP worked with Academic Affairs to extend the deadline to December 18, 2020. ORSP will not be able to increase the FSG budgets, but are happy to consider budget revisions. Additional FSG information is found on the Faculty Support Grant site.
Q: Can I request a no cost extension to move the end date of my federally-sponsored award without changing the budget or requested amount?
A: In most cases, yes. If your award was active between March 31, 2020 - December 31, 2020, you may request a 1-year no-cost extension. If your federally-funded grant is impacted and you need to request a no-cost extension or you have questions, please contact ORSP as soon as possible.
Q: Should I contact ORSP to request the no cost extension for my federally-sponsored grant now?
A: Yes, please contact ORSP now to discuss your project situation.
Q: I don't think I need a no-cost extension, but I need to reduce my effort on the grant for now and increase it in a future time period, what should I do?
A: Please contact ORSP now to discuss and process your change of effort on your project.
