Modular and Detailed Budget Strategies That Support Your Proposal

This may sound rather elementary, but when applying for an NIH grant, you have to know how much money you will need to complete your research. Therefore, you will use the budget and associated justifications to present and support all the expenses required to achieve your proposal’s objectives.

The agency’s short-form application uses a series of special forms you will use for this purpose. In addition, there are two types of budget proposals that you can submit:

  • Modular
  • Detailed

Must-have, step-by-step expert guidance includes:

  • Does your budget match your Research Plan? If it doesn’t, you could be sending up a red flag
  • Underbidding your research could wind up hurting you later … what the experts have to say about “bargain” science
  • Avoid the “ambitious” title — how to use your budget to show you’re serious about your proposal
  • Modular budgets are very popular, but they have their limitations
  • Effort reporting defines your personnel justification; make sure you nail it the first time
