When your proposal is in final form, you and your advisor should work out a budget for your project. Some of the categories you might include in your budget (depending, of course, on the type of work you will be doing) are: travel, housing, meals, supplies, fees and other relevant expenses. Your budget should be realistic. You will be expected to complete your project within the financial parameters outlined in your budget. This will require that you obtain estimates from appropriate sources — travel agencies, government and academic institutions, etc. — and use them to compute what the project will actually cost.
