Grant budgets can be complex. Sponsored Research and Programs (SRP) staff members will help you construct your budget.

Beginning your budget early in your proposal writing is important. It is very helpful if you think about what to include in your budget before you meet with us.

Budget percentages change from time to time. For example, the indirect costs rate, which is negotiated with the federal government, changed in June of 2014. As a result of this change, GU's SRP office now calculates indirect costs using 29% of modified total direct costs (MTDC) .

SRP currently uses the following fringe benefits rates to figure budgets:

 Faculty Fringe Benefits Academic Year  26%
 Faculty Fringe Benefits Summer  18%
Adjunct Faculty Fringe Benefits Academic Year and Summer  18%
 Administrative Fringe Benefits  26%

 Staff Fringe Benefits


 Fellowship & Graduate Assistant Fringe Benefits Academic Year


 Fellowship & Graduate Assistant Fringe Benefits Summer  8.0%
 Student Fringe Benefits Academic Year  1.0%
 Student Fringe Benefits Summer  8.0%
