Special Budget Instructions for Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Proposals
Special Budget Instructions for Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grant (DDRIG) Applicants
For consistency with the NSF cost sharing policy, if person months will be requested for senior personnel, a corresponding salary amount must be entered on the budget. If no person months and no salary are being requested for senior personnel, they should be removed from section A of the budget. This can be done by clicking "Add\Delete Senior Personnel", then "Check to remove" by the name, on the budget form.
The applicant (and their advisor, for doctoral dissertation improvement proposals) will remain on the Cover Sheet and will be reflected in the official NSF notice, should an award be made. The individual(s) role on the project should be described in the Facilities, Equipment and Other Resources section of the proposal. Notwithstanding this guidance, applicants should continue to follow any other budgetary instructions in the program solicitation or application instructions to which they are applying.
