CANR Grants Development Office


The proposal budget is the financial plan of action that reflects the costs required to conduct the proposed project.  Budgets should be prepared using one of the budget templates found on the GDO Forms and Templates page or one of those from the Office for Sponsored Programs’ budget page

The CANR grants office can assist you with the preparation of your budget, provide custom budget templates for various scenarios, or review your budget if you prefer to prepare your own.

Current information on fringe benefits, graduate assistant stipends, indirects, and other budgetary matters can be found in OSP’s Budgeting and Costing Guide.

A detailed budget justification covering the entire project is required for all proposals.

Subawards on USDA grants are charged indirects at the full rate due to the lower indirect rate allowed by the sponsor.  For NIH and NSF proposals, only the first $25,000 of each subaward is charged indirects. This calculation will compute for you if you use the CANR Budget Templates. Otherwise, you will need to compute manually and add in to your budget. Please see GDO if you have any questions or prefer to have your budget prepared for you.

Tuition is to be included at the rate of 60% of in-state tuition for any graduate assistantships included in the budget unless recovering tuition is specifically prohibited by the sponsor. Tuition recovery should be pro-rated based on the percentage of their time the GA will spend on the project.  For example, if the current annual tuition cost is $10,224, for a 10 hr/week GA (half-time), you would calculate:


$10,224 x 60% x 50% = $3067

and would include $3067 in the budget for Year 1. Tuition is to be increased in subsequent years by 6% each year. Alternatively, you can use the tuition calculator found on OSP’s website.

Indirects are to be charged at UConn’s appropriate federally-negotiated rate unless the terms of the RFP dictate otherwise.
