Nature Masterclass Course – Demystifying Grant Budgets

On this Page


Are you securing funding for your upcoming research, conference attendance, or field trip? Maybe you’ve already identified the perfect funding opportunity through our “Finding Funding Opportunities” course and crafted a compelling application using insights from our “Persuasive Grant Writing” course.

Before you finalize and submit your grant application, there’s one crucial task left – creating a budget that outlines how you’ll use the requested funding. But what expenses qualify and what costs should you consider?

In this webinar recording, funding expert Riana Coetsee shares practical strategies on getting out of starting blocks with your grant budget, including an overview of your usual budget items, a budget narrative, and insights on what information funders want to see.

This is a course in the Nature Masterclasses, for which Penn has an institutional subscription. For a broad overview and guide to accessing the courses, see Nature Masterclasses: Overview.
