Using Budget Templates

Sponsored Progams has created budget templates which will help you calculate items in your proposal budget accurately and appropriately (especially time and effort, fringe benefits, and F&A), even though sponsors will often require you to submit a budget in a format of their own choosing as well.

Form Title Purpose Version Date
Fellowship Template

The Fellowship Template is used when preparing applications for individual fellowship proposals.  PLEASE NOTE: this template is currently in Draft mode, so please download a new copy each time it is needed to ensure you have the most recent version.

MTDC Template (Modified Total Direct Costs)

The MTDC template is the most commonly used template for federal grants and corporate sponsors. It calculates F&A on all costs with the exception of equipment over $5,000, capital expenditures, charges for patient care, rental costs of off-site facilities, participant support costs, student tuition remission, scholarships and fellowships, as well as that portion of each subaward in excess of $25,000

NIH Template (National Institutes of Health)

The NIH template should be used for all NIH projects. It calculates F&A on all costs with the exception of equipment over $5,000, capital expenditures, charges for patient care, rental costs of off-site facilities, participant support costs, student tuition remission, scholarships and fellowships, as well as that portion of each subaward in excess of $25,000.

NSF Template (National Science Foundation)

The NSF template mirrors the budget categories on NSF's FastLane budget form. It calculates F&A on all costs with the exception of equipment over $5,000, capital expenditures, charges for patient care, rental costs of off-site facilities, participant support costs, student tuition remission, scholarships and fellowships, as well as that portion of each subaward in excess of $25,000

ATTENTION: DUE TO THE RELOCATION OF THE NSF HEADQUARTERS AND DATA CENTER NSF personnel will be moving from 8/24 through 10/1 and will be hard to reach. Please plan accordingly.

TDC Template (Total Direct Costs)

The TDC template is used when F&A is being charged on all items in the budget. If you have a contract with a state agency, foundation, or non-profit agency, you will probably use this template.
