Sponsored Programs - Developing a Budget

Developing a budget requires attention to policies and regulations of your potential sponsor as well as the internal policies governing Sponsored Programs at WKU. We can assist you in this endeavor by providing you with tips on developing a budget that realistically reflects the costs of your proposed project.

If your budget includes subagreements with other institutions, you'll need to plan well in advance.  For more about including subagreements in your proposal and budget, visit the Subagreements main page.

See our FAQs and Uniform Guidance webpage to find important information commonly needed for preparation of budgets, including information on the current rates for indirect costs, fringe benefits and travel.
