Application Submission


There are three receipt deadlines for all NCI Program Project (P01)

applications.  Regardless of whether the application is new, a

competing renewal, amended, or a request for a supplement, the only

receipt dates are:  February 1, June 1, and October 1.  Incoming

applications are assigned to the review round that follows the date

that they are received by the Division of Research Grants.  For

example, a grant application received in March would be assigned to

the June 1 review cycle.


Also note that effective June 1, 1996, NIH Program Staff are required

to notify the Division of Research Grants Receipt and Referral Office

of any new application requesting $500,000 (direct costs) or more in

any one year, before the application is received.  In order to do

this, Program Staff must be notified in advance of the intent to

submit such an application.  Since the vast majority of NCI P01s

exceed $500,000 per year, you must inform the NCI Referral Officer of

your intent to submit a new P01 application.  The mailing address,

telephone number and E- mail address are as follows:

Amended Applications


The Office of the Director, NIH, issued a notice in June 1996 that

beginning with the October 1, 1996 receipt date the NIH no longer

accepts applications amended more than twice.  This policy applies to

all applications, including new and competing continuation program

projects.  Applicants approaching this limit are strongly advised to

consider alternative funding mechanisms (e.g., concurrent submission

of individual R01s) at the time of submission of any A2 (second

amended) P01 application.


Instructions to Applicants


Copies of the NCI P01 Guidelines can be obtained from the NCI

Referral Office (address shown above).  The Guidelines may also be
