One of the most challenging questions posed by the NIH short form is, “How much money do you think you need to do the proposed work?” This open-ended inquiry can be a minefield for PIs who’ve struggled with the budget section before. If you indicate a number on the lower end, the reviewers may think you can’t plan adequately or accommodate unforeseen setbacks. If you’re number seems too high, the panel may think you’re trying to “game the system.” So exactly, how do you determine your budget, and what do you say about it?.

This number-crunching Webinar will highlight the differences between modular and detailed budgets and reveal how to balance NIH wants and needs with your institution’s requirements. You’ll learn how to write budget justifications and estimate expenses. And find out the NIH rules on allowed amounts.

5 Key Take-Aways:

  • A realistic perspective on costs
  • Proper budget justification for the monies proposed
  • Your institution’s likely needs for local-level approvals
  • Money pits in modular grants
  • How to know what research ideas will cost more than others

This Webinar is Perfect for Scientists Who Want To:

  • Determine how much money is enough
  • Accurately estimate expenditures
  • Correctly itemize expenses
  • Know the NIH rules for justification and program consultation
  • Evaluate indirect costs paid to other institutions through collaboration

Meet Your Presenter:

Dr. Dorothy Lewis, Professor, Internal Medicine, Infectious Diseases at the University of Texas Health Science Center has a 26-year history of writing grant applications. Her successful track record for winning them has given her a valuable “in the trenches” perspective that can benefit you, at whichever stage you find yourself. She received her PhD in Microbiology in 1978 from the University of Arizona in Tucson. She then pursued an NIH-supported postdoctoral fellowship at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine in Albuquerque. In 1985, she published her first paper related to T-cell subset changes in HIV patients and acquired her own independent NIH funding. She has maintained continuous NIH funding since 1985, experiencing both times of multiple grants and times of reduced funding. She is currently a member of the AIDS Immunology and Pathogenesis study section (2007-2011) and became chair in 2009.
