Progress Reporting

Due Date:  October 1

Progress and financial reports are required of all Burroughs Wellcome Fund (BWF) grants.  Advisory Committee and staff depend heavily upon progress and financial reports to evaluate progress.  Late reports inconvenience advisory committee reviewers and impede the Fund's evaluation of its programs.  Failure to submit progress or financial reports in a timely fashion will result in termination of funding.

BWF has provided Progress Report Guidelines to assist in the preparation and submission of Progress Reports in an acceptable manner.  Awardees must provide BWF with an annual progress report detailing scientific progress.  Institutions must provide an annual financial report.  Both reports must be submitted by the due date on forms that will be provided and according to the instructions below.  All PDF on-line forms and instructions referenced on this page can be accessed on this website.

No-Cost Extensions

The named investigator may request a no-cost extension at least 30 days in advance of the grant period end date.  A request for an extension must be made in writing and must include a detailed explanation of the purposes for which the extension is requested.  The request for a no-cost extension must be copied to both the named investigator and the appropriate representative of the named investigator’s institution.  In general, extensions do not exceed 24 months.  The Fund reserves the right to deny such a request in whole or in part.  If the request is approved, it will be incumbent upon the named investigator and his/her institution to provide annual progress and expenditure reports each year of the no-cost extension period, as well as final progress and expenditure reports at the end of the no-cost extension period. BWF will request a return of all no-cost extension funds if progress report requirements and deadlines are not met.
