L&S Funding String
Quick overview of UW-Madison funding strings
Funding String = multipart code that provides full funding information.
These are the components of the funding string: FUND/DEPT/PROJECT/PROGRAM/ACCOUNT CODE
Note 1: the Dept ID component does not require the letter code for UW-Madison, it is assumed. This is the same with WISDM.
Note 2: some funding strings have no project component, like departmental 101- and 136- funding.
Examples (without account code):
sponsored non-federal project in L&S admin, coded for research.
sponsored federal project in Physics, coded for research (older project number).
trust fund project in English, coded for scholarship expenses.
grad school project in LaFollette, coded for research expenses.
gift project in Statistics, coded for research expenses.
101- funding for Astronomy, coded for instructional expenses. NO PROJECT NUMBER.
