Renewal of Appointment

The length of your appointment at National Institutes of Health may vary based on the program in which you are participating. All educational appointments have a time limit for participation.

Appointments may be extended, but extensions are contingent upon program type, funding availability, and recommendation of your mentor.

An extension must be initiated by the mentor. If your mentor wishes to extend your appointment, they will contact the division’s education coordinator to begin the necessary paperwork. Once ORISE has received approval of the extension from NIH, we will send you an extension letter with the new appointment end date and any additional changes.
