Budget Worksheets/Justification & Effort Calculator

*UPDATED July 10, 2020

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) is responsible for reviewing and approving the budget(s) of all proposals submitted to outside funding agencies. Budget development should be detailed, realistic, and as comprehensive as possible to ensure that all costs of the project have been accounted for.  The internal Budget Templates provided below are used by faculty and staff in the preparation of grant budgets.  The three most commonly needed Budget Templates are provided below: (1) standard on-campus projects, (2) on-campus projects that require cost share, and (2) projects that primarily take place off-campus.  

The internal Budget Templates below include auto-calculating features that provide the most current approved fringe benefits and facilities and administrative costs (F&A) as established by the current rate agreement.  When categorized properly, these templates also provide the correct calculation for purchases and/or services that do not incur F&A.

Please choose the proper Budget Template below by first choosing your project's start date and then by choosing your budget template type.


These templates should not be used for Board of Regents Support Fund (BoRSF) programs!  Please see the dedicated BoRSF page for the appropriate budget templates.

NSF-approved Formats for Biographical Sketch and Current and Pending Support

It is important to note that beginning June 1, 2020 October 1, 2020*, proposers will be required to use one of the NSF-approved formats for both the Biographical Sketch and Current and Pending Support sections of NSF proposals. Proposals submitted via FastLane, Research.gov and Grants.gov will be compliance checked to ensure that the documents were prepared in accordance with this new policy.

SciENcv: NSF has partnered with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to use SciENcv: Science Experts Network Curriculum Vitae as an NSF-approved format for use in preparation of both the Biographical Sketch and Current and Pending Support sections of an NSF proposal. SciENcv will produce an NSF-compliant PDF version of the documents which proposers can save and submit as part of their proposals. Additional information about the NSF-approved SciENcv formats is available on the NSF biographical sketch and current and pending support websites.

The SciENcv tool integrates with ORCID, enabling proposers to populate their Biographical Sketches by importing data directly from their ORCID records rather than having to manually enter all the required information. Additionally, Biographical Sketch data maintained in SciENcv can be quickly and easily updated on an ongoing basis for subsequent proposal submissions.

NSF Fillable PDF: NSF is also providing a fillable PDF as an NSF-approved format for use to prepare both the Biographical Sketch and Current and Pending Support sections of an NSF proposal. Proposers can download the respective fillable PDF form from the NSF biographical sketch and current and pending support websites and then submit the completed forms as part of their proposals. Note that the NSF fillable PDF for the Biographical Sketch does not integrate with ORCID.

Recorded Webinar:  NSF recently recorded a webinar on the use of NSF-approved formats.

*Only these components of PAPPG 20-1 have been delayed.  NSF will continue to implement all other changes to the PAPPG beginning June 1, 2020.
