Sponsored Projects Administration

Salary Reimbursement Agreements are used to pay the salary and fringe benefits for a graduate student from another university who will be working with a UTHealth faculty member in their lab, or when a UTHealth student is working in a research lab at a different university. SRAs do not include indirect costs. Salary reimbursement agreements funded by a sponsored project must follow the period of the prime award, and cannot extend beyond the current award period of the prime award.
