LSDF Budget Guidelines

LSDF Budget & Proposal Help

The budgets for the Life Sciences Discovery Fund (LSDF) may not request indirect costs. Because of this, the University has set guidelines on how to add administrative, facilities and other costs. In addition to the university's guidance, your department may also request that you add additional costs to the budget.

Applications are submitted online. To submit an application, find the appropriate funding opportunity on the LSDF web site. Click on the link and you will be directed to a page that should include the full text of the opportunity and a link where you will be able to upload a letter of intent. To submit, you will need to register with the system. Each application can be accessed by only one login.

If your letter of intent is approved, your login page will have an application link added to it. The application can be downloaded as MS Excel and Word documents and should be converted to pdf documents before they are re-uploaded.
