Summer Salary

Summer Salary
Most faculties engaged in sponsored research in COE receive an academic year (9-month) salary paid
over 12 months. Faculty frequently incorporate some summer salary into the budget of a research
proposal in addition to effort they will be contributing during the academic calendar year (which is
either covered by the award or by the institution). Summer grant pay is computed based on a faculty
member’s daily rate of pay and is subject to Effort Reporting and a variety of other restrictions and
requirements. If Principle Investigators plan to work on or hire other faculty or staff for summer work,
they must work closely with the Department Chair and the COE Grant Specialist who is assigned to the
project to determine whether the work and the rate of pay are allowable by both the funding agency
and the University system. (See EPAF document for timelines etc.)
