Creating Your Project Budget

  • Salaries and wages
  • Fringe benefits
  • Consultants and other contractual services
  • Travel
  • Supplies
  • Subcontracts and subawards
  • Tuition assistance
  • Participant costs
  • Equipment rental or purchase
  • F&A (indirect costs)
  • Cost sharing or matching funds
