2015 F31 budget notes- updated 2016

2016 update; further notes: request 100% of tuition

According to the guidance, we should list “tuition + fees”, but NOT health insurance- see attached PDF


Also, I went into the F31 FAQ and found the answer to the question about whether or not we should request the 100% tuition or cut it by 60% ourselves. The answer is: request full 100%

NIH uses a formula to calculate what would be awarded for tuition/fees and training related expenses on institutional training grants. Should the grantee use this formula as part of their requested budget in a competitive grant?

No. Grantees should request full needs in these categories. The formula currently in effect will be applied by the Institute/Center at the time of the award. See the SF 424 (R&R) Application Guide for NIH and Other PHS Agencies.
