Hire & Pay People

Sponsored Programs Administration assists grant-funded faculty and staff with various aspects of personnel administration for their projects, including guidance with hiring and payroll-related issues.

There are various ways to pay people from an award, depending on the work they will be doing. Some positions are written into proposal budgets and, if allowable, are itemized in the budget from the sponsor. Ways to pay people include faculty pay (released time, additional faculty pay), graduate students, undergraduate students, staff and independent contractors. In some cases, participant payments will be made depending on the type of award, and the budget specifications provided by the sponsor.
