Cost Share is the portion of a project or program cost that the sponsor does not pay for. It is the University’s share in the cost of conducting the project/program. Cost sharing occurs either when a sponsor requires, or the University commits in a proposal, funds beyond those awarded by the sponsoring agency to support a particular grant or contract.
These costs are charged to an alternate source (UW or third party). You must identify all sources, and they must agree (via the eGC1 approval process) to commit the necessary funds. For more information, see the GCA Cost Sharing Page or the GIM 21 Cost Sharing Policy.
This page is used to indicate the types and amounts of any cost sharing for this proposal.
If the Financial & General Compliance Question FG-1 is answered Yes, then cost sharing information is required.
