About Cost Share

Cost sharing is the portion of the total costs of a sponsored project that is borne by the UW rather than the sponsor. The UW is required to track and in many instances report cost share for sponsored projects, both federal and non-federal. If not in compliance with federal and sponsoring agency requirements, the UW could jeopardize current and future sponsored awards.
