Budget Templates

Federal Sponsors


National Institutes of Health

The SAM Office strongly encourages faculty to use the ASSIST system for NIH proposals instead of Workspace.  Proposal budgets are entered directly into the ASSIST system.

NIH subaward budgets may be entered into ASSIST or may be downloaded and sent to the subawardee for completion.


National Science Foundation

The NSF requires that investigators enter budgets directly into the FastLane proposal system. Refer to the NSF FastLane Budget Sample [pdf] and the NSF FastLane Budget Sample with Subaward [pdf] to preview the FastLane budget documentation requirements.


Other Sponsors

The generic budget template [xlsx] and the budget template FAQ may be used to create a budget for a sponsored project lasting one to five years. The sponsor's budget form or proposal system may vary. Many sponsors require that the budget be entered into the sponsor's proposal system. This should be addressed in the program guidelines and/or agency policy manual.
