UNCG Sponsored Programs

Facilitating Research, Scholarship & Creative Activity

Project budgets at the proposal stage provide an estimated, but detailed financial plan of what your project will look like if funded, and a financial blueprint of how you accomplished your goals once your project is complete. As such, budgets should receive careful attention in the proposal development phase of a project and thorough tracking during the life of the project. Remember that external sponsors are truly investing in the ultimate successful outcome of the project.  The budget and budget justification are your chance to demonstrate that you intend to use your funder’s investment in a thoughtful, effective, and efficient way and can also greatly add to the funder’s understanding of your project.
