SSAP/MARCS Research Workshop
Every research project needs a budget; every budget needs a budget justification
If you are applying for funding, you must say what you are planning to spend that funding on. More than that, you need to show how spending that money will help you to answer your research question.
Developing the budget is the perfect way to plan your project clearly. A good budget shows the assessors that you have thought about your research in detail and, when done well, it can serve as a convincing overview of the project.
Accompanying every budget is a budget justification. For each item in your budget, you need to answer two questions:
- Why do you need this money?
- Where did you get your figures from? The budget justification links your budget to your project plan and back again.
REDI’s Dr Jenny Horn will be presenting budget writing tips and tricks for ARC schemes - so come along with your questions and be ready for the 2019 grant writing rounds! Suitable for postdocs, ECRs, MCRs and senior researchers alike.
