Prepare this budget before beginning the research project. Use the budget as a guide to identify and estimate any cost that may be needed to carry out the
rearch project. Group certain costs such as equipment or supplies. Do not include unpaid labor in items of costs. I a grant is awarded to the school and/or
student. or other sources of outside financial support are expected, record these in the column Amount Provided by Other Sources. Include a dollar value for
any in-kind support such as facilities or equipment provided by the student or other source.(Record the actual expenses for the project on Research Project
Expenses page.)
