Citing CDI Support in Publications and CVs
All publications, press releases, and presentations citing results from CDI-supported research must include the following acknowledgment of CDI grant support: "Funding for this project was provided by the Children's Discovery Institute of Washington University and St. Louis Children's Hospital."
When citing CDI awards in CVs, please refer to the CDI as the "Children's Discovery Institute of Washington University and St. Louis Children's Hospital."
Grantees may request an extension (without additional funds) of the final budget period of the previously approved project period one time for a period of up to 12 months beyond the original expiration date shown in the award letter if additional time beyond the established expiration date is required to ensure adequate completion of the originally approved project. All NCE requests are due at least 60 days prior to the end of the final budget period. Grantees should utilize the NCE non-federal request template letter on WU’s Office of Sponsored Research Services website. The NCE request should address:
- An explanation of why funds remain and how the NCE period requested will be utilized.
- The balance of unexpended funds as well as a breakdown of how the funds will be used in the extension period.
Faculty Scholars may not request a NCE.
A No-Cost Extension Progress Report is due with the NCE request. Please see the Progress Report Submission Guidelines for the NCE report requirements. The NCE request and report should be submitted via the CDI Grant Submission System.
The principal investigator is responsible for ensuring that there is no scientific or budgetary overlap between his/her CDI project and any other sponsored project.
Scientific overlap occurs when: Substantially the same research, a specific research objective or the research design for accomplishing the objective are the same or closely related in two or more awards, regardless of the funding source.
Budgetary overlap occurs when: Duplicate or equivalent budgetary items (e.g., supplies, equipment, salaries) are requested for projects but already are provided by another source.
Overlap, whether scientific or budgetary, is not permitted. Any overlap should be brought to the attention of the CDI immediately upon discovery.
