Cost Sharing

Cost Sharing Available from The Office of Research

The Office of Research Administration (ORA) offers two opportunities to receive cost sharing funds under qualifying proposals when formally requested on the ORA Project Submission form.

For financial auditing reasons, ORA cost sharing will be considered voluntary and uncommitted, and will not be proposed to the sponsor in the budget or identified in the narrative proposal, unless cost sharing is identified in the RFP as ‘mandatory’ cost sharing. This policy is consistent with NSF’s cost sharing guidance issued as Notice No. 128 dated January 24, 2003.

Tuition Cost Sharing

When requested at proposal stage, ORA will support the tuition needs of one (1) full-time doctoral candidate or post masters student who is enrolled in a Drexel doctoral program and will be working on the project, providing the proposed and awarded budget meets the following criteria:

  1. Includes a full stipend for the student who will receive the tuition cost share benefit. 
  2. Budgets minimum expenditures of $75,000 in annual modified total direct costs (MTDC). 
  3. Recovers full indirect costs from the sponsor.
