Investigators who receive funding are required to submit interim and final progress and financial reports to discuss their findings, methods, and—when appropriate—future directions. Follow-on funding can be discussed during this process. A new letter of intent (LOI) must be submitted for follow-on proposals.

All awardees are required to notify the ADDF of any changes made to the budget. No cost extensions are allowed, but must be approved. To request an extension, please email Dan Teng, describing the reason for the request.

Interim Progress Reports

In the interim progress report, the investigator should clearly discuss the extent to which progress has contributed to the objectives of the project, as well as positive and negative unexpected findings. Problems should be interpreted in relation to their probable effects on the likelihood and cost of attaining the project’s objectives.

Final Progress Reports

Upon completion of the grant award, the investigator should prepare a final scientific report that presents and assesses the overall findings and indicates the degree to which the objectives were met. The investigator should also include potentially fruitful new lines of research indicated by the results of the project. Additional pages can be attached, including charts and graphs of results.

Financial Reports

Upon completion of the grant award, the financial report should compare actual expenditures with the budgeted amounts. Please provide an explanation for any deviation.

Please use only these forms to submit both interim and final progress and financial reports. Completed reports should be submitted to Dan Teng, Grants Associate.
