To incorporate graduate student fringe benefits in a funding proposal budget within the PERIS™ MyFunding module, the following steps should be completed:
1) In the Funding Proposal, enter the name of the graduate student on the Additional Personnel page (see related Quick Guide).
2) In the Personnel Budget Grid, the graduate student’s name should be listed. Enter the corresponding salary and effort information, and enter “0” for the associated fringe benefit rate.
3) In the General Cost Budget Grid, enter the graduate student fringe benefits as a general cost and select “Graduate Student Fringe Benefits” from the drop-down list.
Completing the above steps will correctly prevent the graduate student fringe benefits from being included in the Indirect Cost base.
