End of Appointment

The appointment end date is specified in the appointment letter that you receive from ORAU. Appointment end dates should be strictly observed and may not be changed without the appropriate communication to ORAU.

As your scheduled end date approaches, ORAU will send you a letter confirming the end date and outlining the procedures necessary to complete your appointment. Any outstanding travel reimbursement forms must also be submitted. These items must be received by ORAU before your final stipend can be issued. Additional items may also be required.

Leaving an Appointment Early

Should you need to leave the program before the specified end date, you should directly inform your ORAU point of contact, your mentor and your coordinator. Two weeks' notice is requested. Providing insufficient notice, or failure to communicate directly with ORAU, could result in unnecessary complications with final stipend payments. It your responsibility to verify that ORAU has been informed of any change in appointment dates.
