Cost Sharing

Equipment Cost Sharing

If a granting agency requires or "strongly encourages" equipment cost-sharing, you may request these funds from the UI Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development. Each request is handled on a case-by-case basis. Completed  Equipment Cost Sharing Request Forms must be returned to the Division of Sponsored Programs at least two weeks before the application is to be mailed.
 

Non-Equipment Cost Sharing

If a granting agency requires or "strongly encourages" non-equipment cost-sharing it is best to first seek these funds from your department or college since non-equipment cost sharing funds are very limited from the UI Vice President for Research.  Non-equipment matching funds are generally limited to non-personnel expenses such as: supplies, travel, etc.  Completed   Non-Equipment Cost Sharing Request Forms must be returned to the Division of Sponsored Programs at least two weeks before the application is to be mailed.
