Relinquishment of a grant includes:

•  Transferring grants to another institution

•  Change or transfer of PI


If a PI plans to permanently leave the institution during the period of a sponsored project:

•  The institution may retain the award and change the PI

•  The PI may request to transfer the award to the new institution

- (Example: 5 R21 MH082308-01A1_5-28021)


The PI typically will request an award transfer unless it is an institution-specific project


The PI should notify the pre-award and post-award offices as soon as possible when a transfer of award(s) is necessary
