Cost Sharing


Cost Sharing represents that portion of the total sponsored project cost that is covered by the university (and/or third party) rather than by the external sponsor. The terms "In-Kind" or "Matching Costs" are used synonymously with "Cost Share" or "Cost Sharing."  

Fundamental Requirements for Cost Share:

  1. Cost Share must be identified and approved during proposal development
  2. Cost share, once committed, must be met and documented
