RA budget figures for a 50% RA stipend: $12692 for Fall 2023, $12692 for Spring 2024, $6034 for Summer 2024 (2 months). The figures include fringe benefits, and the summer figures includes an additional few hundred dollars to cover extra fringes that will get charged if the student is registered for fewer than 3 hours. The pay received by the RA will be lower than the figures above (since the figures include fringe benefits). We recommend that you request two semesters and a summer of funding, which will somewhat exceed the Research Board’s maximum request of $30,000. Please confirm your budget figures with Brock Martin before submission and before assigning an RA position. Any over-expenditures will be your responsibility, NOT the department’s, so please check with Brock.
Travel budget figures: requests are considered for research-related travel such as travel to work with collaborators (but not conference travel, which is supported instead under the Scholars’ Travel Fund below). Include per diem figures in your request and put an itemized travel budget in the “Budget Justification” section of the application.
Other resources: get your internal balances from My-UI-Financials (using the VPN if not on campus). If you have no internal funds, explain briefly in the budget section (eg “start-up all spent”). If you hold an external grant, explain why it does not cover the RA requested from the Research Board.
