NOTE: Both PIs and SOs may initiate Withdrawal Requests but only an SO may submit them.
NOTE: When searching by PI, the hitlist will only show those grants on which that investigator is the contact PI. If the investigator is associated with a Multi-PI grant, but is not the contact PI, those grants will not be part of the search results.
NOTE: There are times that the agency may be taking action on the application that will prevent users from withdrawing their application through Prior Approval system.

To submit the Withdrawal Request to agency:
