One response to “Timing”

    I think the research offices everywhere require at least a week prior to the actual deadline – I found the easiest way around that is simply that I mark whichever deadline I am aiming for in my calendar as a week prior to whatever it actually is (so, e.g. this summer the funding agency had a big grant deadline on 10 July, but I put it in my diary as 3 July). This makes for much less stress when interacting with research office and makes everyone there happy, while for me it just means that I rearrange my time so that I write the proposals earlier than my colleagues.
