Budget Preparation: Travel

The costs of travel related to the sponsored project, for the PI as well as other project staff, are allowable expenses.  Since travel is often one of the first budget line items to be cut by the sponsor, it is important to be as specific as possible about what travel is planned and why it will benefit the project.  Domestic travel, foreign travel, and non-UI employee travel should be budgeted as separate line items. Please be sure to consult the information on the Fly America Act if you are planning foreign travel.
