When an application due date falls on a weekend, the application deadline is automatically extended to the next business day. For example, applications due Saturday, March 5, 2022, can still be submitted on Monday, March 7, 2022, until 5 p.m. local time of the applicant organization.

Applicants must always check the eRA Commons to view their application and ensure it has successfully made it to NIH. As we’ve stated in the past, you should Send Applications Early To Avoid Electronic Submission Errors.

See Due Dates on Holidays/Weekends/NIH Office Closure on NIH’s Submission Policies page for additional information.
