Budget Guidelines: Outside the United States
A budget is required for every grant request and should detail the intended use of requested funds. The budget must illustrate a reasonable cost for the program activities being supported.

The LGO will not fund budget line items such as, but not limited to, the following:
Entertainment
Gifts for faculty or organizers
First class airfare
Salaries and benefits
Direct sponsorship of identified individual participant expenses; however, the LGO can consider supporting a structured scholarship program established by the organization sponsoring the educational conference.

Generally, to support an educational activity, the LGO will consider funding the following types of expenses:
Educational content development
Honorarium for medical or scientific faculty (prefer CME/CE only)
Speaker travel (coach), reasonable expenses for lodging and meals (prefer CME/CE only)
Room rental and/or A/V equipment rental related to the educational portion of the program
Reasonable meals or refreshments for participants as allowed by home/host country guidelines
Cost for CME/CE accreditation
Meeting-related expenses (must be detailed in budget)
Scholarships for travel, lodging or program registration fees for HCPs to attend educational conferences through a structured scholarship program established by the organization sponsoring the educational conference; the institution or sponsoring organization shall have sole discretion over the selection of the scholarship recipients and distribution of scholarship funds.

Recipients receiving support may be required to complete post program budget reconciliation, submit any data required for state/federal/country reporting purposes such as Open Payments (Sunshine Act), and provide program outcomes.
