The NCI understands that the emergency declaration related to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) will adversely affect applicants' ability to submit applications in a timely manner.

Cancer research education (R25) grant applications submitted to NCI's Funding Opportunity Announcements PAR-18-476, PAR-18-477, and PAR-18-478 for the application due date of May 25, 2020, will be accepted for consideration if complete and received by 5:00 PM local time June 30, 2020.

Institutions need not request advance permission to submit late due to this declared emergency. A cover letter citing this Notice may be submitted, but it is not required.

All late R25 applications submitted by 5 PM June 8, 2020, will be reviewed in the council round to which they were submitted (i.e., the January 2021 meeting of the NCI's National Cancer Advisory Board [NCAB]). Please note that we anticipate, but cannot guarantee, that R25 applications received on June 9, 2020, through June 30, 2020, will also be reviewed at the January 2021 meeting of the NCI's National Cancer Advisory Board.
