Create a Budget and Source Funding

Depending on the scale of work required, citizen science projects can be cost-effective while still achieving desirable results. A budget may be sourced from grants, sponsor donations and government funding. Understanding the resources required to undertake a project will help determine the budget required to outlay and sustain a project over a longer-term.

The available budget can define the scale of a project. Depending on where funding is being sourced, it is important to keep in mind that available funding may fluctuate during a project and to consider how funding use will be tracked and monitored. A simple way to do this is to assign available funding to certain milestones.

For possible funding sources head to the Finding Collaborators and Funding section.
