The budget normally includes salary and fringe benefits for personnel, equipment, supplies, travel, patient care costs, contractual costs, consulting costs, telephone calls, paper, computer usage, and equipment maintenance. (1 page)
The budget must be realistic in relation to the research plan.
Over- or underestimating the budget may alert the proposal reviewers that the investigator does not truly understand the research project.
Justification for each budget line item is essential.
Such items include the specific functions of the personnel, consultants, statisticians, and collaborators.
Grants that cover multiple years should contain budgets that reflect each year and include changes in costs (such as salaries and fringe benefits) over time.
