What kind of cost-share is required?
A. The U.S. cooperating institutions together must match a total of at least 25 percent of the requested grant amount. Contributions may be in-kind. The average cost-share of the funded applications from the 1998-2003 competitions was over 50 percent. The match is to be calculated on the amount requested from ALO; it can be provided by the lead institution or shared in any proportion by the U.S. cooperating institution(s).
