Cost Sharing

The Office of Research facilitates cost sharing approvals during proposal development and assists in administering cost-sharing commitments for awards. The office also provides funds for partial support of sponsored program cost sharing. By centralizing the function, the EVPRP helps to ensure that cost-sharing is targeted to Purdue's strategic research goals.

Central cost-sharing funds are intended to supplement, not supplant, cost- sharing provided by colleges, schools, departments and other units. Cost-sharing commitments demonstrate the unit's support of the proposed work while also helping to prioritize requests within units and leverage centralized cost-sharing resources.

Cost sharing can be considered for all proposals ranging from single investigator proposals to large interdisciplinary proposals, and from research instrumentation and equipment to research facilities.
