I am interested in applying for the CHSS grant
I would like to know
Thank you for getting back to me so quickly.
The first question I did not pose it properly. I am rephrasing it.
I wanted to know
a. Whether the per diem can be taken by the PI and co-PIs as a lump sum amount without the need to settle it
b. or whether the Per Diem can be taken as a lump sum amount in the form of an advance and then has to be settled based on the bills
b. or do we have to spend first and then reimburse it?
I would operate under the assumption that you should keep all the receipts in the case the Grant coordinator requires further evidence of expenses related under the grant. Yes, both the pi and co-pi can take per diem, but again, I'd highly recommend that you keep all receipts. The majority of the grant will be paid up front and made available for the co-pi's to use. It is not a reimbursement-based grant.
Thank you, Molly.
