In order to attract and retain high quality experts as members of our Science/Industry Advisory Board members, we would like to be able to reimburse these individuals for their travel expense to our yearly meeting. Is that an allowable expense? How about offering them honorarium? If so, what is the ceiling? Thanks.

1 Answer

The need for an Advisory Board should be justified appropriately in the proposal. Travel expenses for an Advisory Board are allowable as long as these are reasonable expenses and consistent with what would be reimbursed for individuals traveling on U.S. federal (e.g. NSF) funded grants. Honoraria should be reasonable and consistent with Lead Institution Policies for such Advisory Boards. As noted in the RFP-I Section VI 9.0, the Research Board may elect to award a grant for any, all, or none of the proposed activities in any given proposal.
