Research and Scholarship FAQs

What is involved in the final award closeout?

Within 90 days of the award's end date, two options should be carefully reviewed:

  • If the project research is completed at the end of the award period, a final closeout is required. This closeout will consist of final reporting to include fiscal activity, research accomplishments, patent/license discoveries, etc. These components are generally submitted to the funding agency by the University's Office of Research & Innovation.  
  • If there are unexpected funds at the end of the award period and the project research is not completed, the PI may request a no-cost extension from the funding agency. The assigned Unit Research Administrator (URA) and Sponsored Research Administrator (SRA) may assist with this request.
