The below schedules will aid with your submission and are contingent upon your submission being complete. Please refer to our Application Process and Deadlines policy for full details.
Deadlines are two weeks prior to a scheduled meeting. Initial decisions are communicated in about two to seven business days after the meeting. We recommend applying about three months prior to the start of your project. Due to Federal quorum requirements, meeting dates and times are subject to change.

There are no specific deadlines, except for students soon to graduate or students taking two-semester research courses (see deadlines in Student Project Timelines). We recommend that you apply at least four weeks prior to the start of your project if you are not a student subject to special deadlines.
Always submit as early as possible, especially during our high volume times (late October through mid-spring).
Decisions are communicated roughly one week after the submission of a complete package during low volume times, unless staff members are out of the office.
