7e. Transfer of grants to another institution

The institutional procedures for transferring a grant to a different institution are described on the Division of Sponsored Programs website. Departments are also encouraged to submit the appropriate PI transfer form when a Principal Investigator leaves the institution.

Generally, the original institution must formally relinquish the award and any remaining funding; the new institution must formally accept the award and associated terms and conditions; and the funding agency must approve the transfer to new institution.
