Spring 2021 BPH Research Updates
Indirect Cost Return Pilot Program: 2021–2022
To support our faculty and academics who rely on external sources for salary support, this pilot program will provide eligible PIs with funds calculated based on the amount of external funding spent in the fiscal year. Specifically, PIs will receive an amount equivalent to 5% of the indirect costs spent from their contracts and grants funding in a given fiscal year as discretionary funds. This program will take place July 1, 2021-June 30, 2022.
