    Hi Molly, 

    Just want to clarify, but the number in the SIDA per diem website indicates the per diem per month that the grant approves for each country? For example, the number in per diem for Vietnam is 411, meaning that the grant would cover up to $411 in per diem for the PI a month? 


    Also, are we supposed to fill out in details all the sheets in the budget template? I assume that the dates and rates are our estimation, right?

    Hi Huy,

    The SIDA per diem rates are listed in Swedish Krona per day, excluding accommodations. You will need to convert the per diem rate to USD.

    Yes, the budget dates and calculations should be your best estimation.

    Thanks Molly. May I also ask if the grant will be transferred to the host institution in US dollars or in Swedish Krona? If from USD, what American bank would the grant be transferring from? I'm asking because Vietnamese banks have different wire transfer fee and withdrawing fee for different currencies.

    Hi Huy,

    All transfers will be initiated from the AAS as USD, from our United States-based account, so I would estimate your fees from that.

    Dear Molly,

    I am interested in applying for the Cultivating the Humanities and Social Science (CHSS) short and long-term research grants. 
    In this regard, I was in the process of preparing the budget as per the template shared on your website. I would like to know whether it is required to fill in the details mentioned in the sheets beyond "Cover" i.e., "Travel", "Supplies", "Prof. Services"...... till "Misc." At the moment, I am able to fill the tentative budget for "Cover" sheet only. Please guide me.
    Further, I would like to know the number of Co-PIs are allowed for this research grant. 
    Looking forward to your response.

    Dear Vishal,

    We appreciate any details you can provide beyond the cover sheet, but only the cover sheet is required at this point of the application process. 

    Co-pi projects are those with two (2) individuals listed; team projects may have 3-5 individuals in general, but more can be listed.

    Dear Molly,

    Sorry to bother you again.

    May I ask you whether the 10% Affiliated Institution Overhead - Flat Rate will be a part of the total estimated budget of the project or it will excluded?

    Dear Vishal,

    Thank you for your question. The maximum award amount is $12,000 USD, including the 10% overhead.

    Thank you for this question and answer! 

    When we submit the budget, do we also include a line for the 10% in the budget cover sheet? 

    Thank you,

    Sujatha

    Dear Sujatha,

    Yes, you should include the 10% overhead, as all grant funding will be disbursed/"flow-through" your institution. The only cases in which the 10% overhead does not apply is if the overhead is waived by your institution, or the applicant is an independent scholar and is receiving the funds directly.

    I have an archival project which requires scanning of over 400 books and periodicals. Under 'professional services', can I hire a Research Assistant to help scan the materials?

    Sorry for the chain. I found two identical budget templates, one on the application page and another on the grant FAQ page. One of them mentions that I can hire a Research Assistant, while the other one mentions that I cannot. Could you please clarify.

    Typically any costs for things that the co-pi/primary applicant would carry out, such as research travel and archive work would not be eligible for grant funding since the grant does not pay for compensating time the co-pi spends on the project (ie stipend, honoraria, and renumeration are all ineligible budget items). What is allowed however, are the hiring of individuals for specific professional services, such as a website designer or editor for a book chapter or article, etc.
