Clarification – Time Limit on NIH Resubmission Applications

Clarification: Time Limit on NIH Resubmission Applications


Important Points: NIH policy allows a thirty-seven month window for
resubmissions (A1 applications) following the submission of a New,
Renewal, or Revision application (A0 application). The policy was
implemented to stimulate new research directions for projects that were
not successful initially and may have become outdated over the course of
several years.

Clarification: The initial submission of a new, renewal or revision
application constitutes the starting point for the thirty-seven month

After thirty-seven months, NIH views a submission as a new application,
regardless of whether an unsuccessful resubmission (A1) was submitted
during the thirty-seven month time period.
