Non-Profit Sponsor Facilities and Administrative (F&A) Rates

The UW will accept the sponsor’s F&A policy if the policy is published on the sponsor website, in the official program announcement, or on the sponsor-approved application forms.

Alternatively, if the entity is listed on the Non-Profit Sponsor F&A Rate Table, the F&A Rate listed will be accepted as the F&A Rate for that sponsor, unless otherwise specified by that sponsor by policy, website, program announcement or application form.
