Fringe Benefit Rate

These rates are for budgeting purposes only. 

FY 21
Full-time personnel (75% FTE or more) 37%
Part-time personnel (Less than 75% FTE) 8%
Students (including graduate students) 4%

These suggested rates are based on the Federal Fringe Rate of 28.4 + the FICA Rate of 7.65.  So the suggested budgeted rate of 37%.  These rates are effective for FY 2021. A 2% inflationary increase is recommended for multi-year proposals.

Organized Research Most university-related proposals are either applied or basic research.
Basic Research Proposals include expenditures for activities specifically organized to support basic research. Basic Research has the purpose of general increases in knowledge. No specific intent is required other than learning. The Basic Research may be narrowly focused on a particular field of study, but there is no specific practical use that drives the direction of the research. Examples of basic research may include laboratory work in biology, investigations into mathematical equations, and studies on literary works.
Applied Research Proposal includes expenditures for activities specifically organized to support applied research. Applied Research has the purpose of meeting a specific goal. The goal (beyond the research itself) is well defined and the research is narrowly focused on obtaining that goal. The goal may or may not be commercial, but it always includes putting something into practical use. Examples of applied research include curriculum-planning and clinical research.
Instruction Proposal primarily includes expenditures for credit/non credit courses; academic, vocational, and technical instruction; remedial and tutorial instruction. For example, a proposal is "Instruction" if it is primarily designed to provide classes. A proposal to plan a curriculum but not teach a curriculum is not Instruction.
Other Sponsored project Proposal primarily includes activities established to provide non-instructional services beneficial to individuals/groups external to the institution, but does not include substantial research-related components.
