The Office of Research Services (ORS) has matching funds available for grants that require cost sharing. Matching funds may be used for any cost that is approved by the funding agency.
Faculty or staff members who are preparing a funding proposal that requires cost sharing must contact ORS to discuss the budget development and cost sharing requirements early in the proposal development process. The Research/Grants Development Specialist will work with the faculty or staff member to develop the budget.
Once the proposal is ready for final review and approval, a memo requesting matching funds must be attached to the Grant Approval Form. The memo should include a budget for the matching funds and an explanation of why matching funds are needed.
