Matching Funds/Cost-Sharing

If sponsor guidelines require cost-sharing or matching funds (cash contribution or donation of in-kind services such as contributed time and effort by the Principal Investigator and research group members), provide appropriate letters of commitment from UT Dallas or third-party source for cost-sharing.

All matching funds or cost-sharing commitments based on the faculty member's academic time and effort must be approved in advance by the Principal Investigator's department chair and dean and be documented in writing to the Office of Sponsored Projects with the proposal. Awards will not be processed unless there is a cost center identified for cost share.
