GIF may approve the extension of a project in the GIF Young Scientists’ Program by up to 6 months, on the condition that no further funds are needed in addition to the originally approved budget.

The total duration of a Grant in the GIF Young Scientists’ Program cannot exceed 18 months.
The final financial and scientific reports are due no later than 3 months after the end of the extension period.
Any surplus funds still remaining after this period must be returned to GIF within 60 days after the date of the final balance letter by the financial department of the GIF requesting the return of surplus funds.
