Grant Budget

A detailed budget is a required component of the NEF Grant application. Please download the Excel template below and use it to document the items you intend to purchase as part of your grant project.

Break down your budget items by the following types: stipends, materials, equipment, fees, professional development, non-NEF funding, and other. Details are included in the template to help you determine the appropriate categories. 

NEF cannot add additional funding after a grant has been awarded, so make sure to include all anticipated expenses, such as shipping costs, in your budget proposal.

Once completed, upload your grant budget to your grant application using the “Upload File” button provided in the Grant Budget Information section.
