Final Report Guidelines

Deadline

Final reports are due two years after awards are distributed. (Ex: Final reports for Fall 2014 applicants, who received their awards January 2015, are due in December 2016.)

Faculty with overdue final reports may not receive a new MEG Grant until their final report has been submitted.
