Internal Deadlines

Internal closing deadlines are set to allow time for reviewing, revising and processing of applications, while ensuring sufficient time for submitting to the granting body by the due date. For external submissions each applicant is responsible for his or her own submission to the funding agency. For internal submissions to UBC Vancouver, the Office of Research Services will collect all submissions and forward them to UBC Vancouver, provided the applications are in the Office of Research Services 48 hours prior to the deadline. The Office of Research Services internal closing dates for final complete applications for the UBC V Hampton grants are listed on the web: http://www.ors.ubc.ca/eforms/hss-hampton.htm.

Research grant applications submitted after the internal closing date will not be accepted. The Provost (Okanagan) or the Manager, Office of Research Services, may approve the submission of a late application if it is considered that there are genuine extenuating circumstances. Applications that are incomplete as of the internal closing date, or after any extension approved by the Research Services Office to allow for completion, will not be submitted.

Note: All applications must be submitted in person to the Office of Research Services. Do not submit grant applications or any supporting documentation via inter-campus mail.

Individuals or departments presenting applications for signature will be called as soon as the documents are ready for pickup. For internal deadlines, the following principles apply:

  • Major granting body schemes (e.g. Tri Council)
    Internal deadline is generally two (2) days or 48 hours prior to the external deadline. (Faculties may have their own internal schedule in addition to the Office of Research Services deadlines).
  • Other granting agencies
    Final complete applications must be received by the Office of Research Services one (1)day or 24 hours prior to the submission date of the funding deadline, unless otherwise advised. (Faculties may have their own internal schedule in addition to the Office of Research Services deadlines). 
  • Overseas granting bodies
    Final complete applications must be received by the Office of Research Services five (5) business days prior to the submission date of the funding deadline, unless otherwise advised.
