Policies, Responsibilities, and Procedures
The Graduate School at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has approved a policy that the total cost for a Research Assistant (RA) or Program Assistant (PA) on NIH funding including stipend, tuition remission, and fringe benefits (health insurance) cannot exceed the 0 year NIH NRSA postdoctoral fellow/trainee stipend plus associated fringe benefit costs (health insurance). This has been determined to be a Reasonable Compensation Limit for the UW-Madison.
