Cost share funding is the portion of total sponsored project costs that are not paid by the sponsoring agency, and therefore covered by some other source. It may also be called matching funds, where the sponsor requires the grantee to “match” the sponsor funding at a specific ratio. 

“In kind” cost share requests require approval from the DEO and/or Center/Institute Director who will ascertain whether the faculty/staff member has available time to direct towards the cost-share.

Other expenses (equipment/facility usage etc.) may also be offered for shared resources and will require approval from the C/I director. The PI does not need to fill out the cost share request form below as such “in kind” requests can be handled internally within the appropriate unit. 

For more information about the guidelines and processes, please see the Cost Share Funding Process and Guidelines.  

To formally submit a Cost Share Funding Request to the College of Engineering, please use the workflow form here 

Questions can be directed to the Assistant Director, Finance & Budget in the College of Engineering.
