Although the research grant budget is usually prepared after the text of a proposal has been completed, it is nonetheless an integral part of a research grant application and must clearly reflect resources needed for the proposed project. Experienced grant applicants know that the members of the staff of the granting agency and the reviewers expect to find a clear and justifiable relation between the proposed project and the requested budget. Without such a total presentation, there is little chance that the budget will be approved as requested.
