Budget figures for a 50% RA stipend: $5271.60 for Summer 2022 (2 months), $12098.34 for Fall 2022, $12098.34 for Spring 2023, $5377.03 for Summer 2023 (2 months). These figures include fringe benefits; the pay received by the RA will be lower – see figures here. We recommend requesting two semesters and a summer of funding, in order to come close to the $30,000 maximum request. 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.
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.
