See the memo from Maria Zuber: "RAS to close July-2-5. Please plan research proposals accordingly."
MIT will celebrate a special holiday closing for faculty and staff from July 2, 2021 - July 5, 2021. The table below outlines the MIT Research Administration Services (RAS) deadlines for proposals with sponsor due dates during this period and immediately thereafter.
MIT Deans and the Vice President for Research will not consider waivers for late proposal submissions to RAS during the period from June 28, 2021 – July 7, 2021. On July 6 and July 7, 2021, from 8:00 a.m. to noon, Principal Investigators may submit an updated statement of work (SOW) for a proposal previously submitted and due to the sponsor on these dates. However, updates to the technical sections are at the PI’s own risk; RAS will not re-review this text.
