Join Karl Kapp for an in-depth discussion in this video Budget, part of Grant Writing for Education.
- The budget section of your grant proposal…is one of the most critical elements you will write.…It defines the grant's priorities,…provides reviewers insight into what will be accomplished,…and indicates how the funding agency's money will be spent.…In the exercise files are two budget narratives,…and a copy of a budget for a five year grant,…as well as a budget template…from the US Department of Education.…Before writing your budget…you need to sit down with your team,…and a person knowledgeable about…institutional costs and personnel costs,…and determine the overall cost structure of your grant.…
That person will probably talk to you…about direct and indirect costs.…Direct costs are costs directly…attributable to the grant activities.…Typical examples of direct costs are salary,…fringe benefits, travel, equipment, supplies,…and make sure your direct costs listed in your budget…are mentioned in your project narrative.…Determine how much time from each person…will be allocated to the grant work.…Determine equipment costs,…
