Budget Tips and Template

Tips for Developing Your Budget:

  1. Start with the Eberly College Research Office's budget template (updated June 12, 2024), which includes updated fringe benefits rates and separate tabs for up to five budget years. 
  2. Carefully read through the guidelines for the funding opportunity you will be applying for to look for any budgetary restrictions you may need to adhere to (e.g., maximum allowable direct costs).
  3. If you need assistance during early stages of budget development, please contact the Eberly College Research Office. You should review budget items early in the process, as you may need to address budgetary issues sooner than you think. 
  4. Use the resources listed below to help you determine your budgetary needs.
