Prior Approval - Withdrawal Request
Both PIs and SOs may initiate Withdrawal Requests but only an SO can submit them.
This type of request lets you withdraw a grant from NIH.
- A PI sees applications on which the PI is listed as the contact PI that matches the following criteria.
- An SO sees all applications for an institution that matches the following criteria.
- Applications that have gone through council review and have any with the following statuses will not display as eligible to be withdrawn.
There are times that the agency may be taking action on the application that will prevent users from withdrawing their application through Prior Approval. In these cases, Prior Approval displays the following error: There is a pending agency action on Application, please submit your withdrawal request to Division of Receipt and Referral.
See Viewing and Initiating Requests for details on initiating a request. After initiating a Withdrawal request, you see the following details screen.
