Cost Sharing on External Proposals


How to Apply

The Cost Sharing on External Proposals funds are administered by the Office of Research and Engagement and are used to provide matching dollars for external proposals. If cost sharing is required by the sponsor or considered strategically important, ORE may provide up to 60% of the cost share if any combination of other units provides 40% of the cost share.

Requests may be made for all types of research and should be directed to Assistant Vice Chancellor for Research, Jean Mercer at or (865) 974-2465.
