Alum Success

Elaina Marinik

My education at Lake State taught me not only the basics of exercise science and health and wellness but prepared me for my future research career. I became involved in national organizations, improved my networking skills to create working relationships, and ended up with an amazing paid internship that turned into a 3-year research professional position at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, GA. Now in graduate school pursuing a doctorate degree at Virginia Tech, I rely on the knowledge I acquired at Lake State and put it to practice daily while discussing health-related topics in class or conducting obesity and inflammation research in our laboratory.

Fringe Benefits

Fringe Benefit Sheet Is Available from Human Resources (x2190)

Indirect Costs

Indirect costs include expenses that are less obviously related to the project, but are still necessary to support the environment in which the project takes place. Indirect costs are sometimes referred to as "overhead costs" or "facilities and administrative costs." These costs can include plant operations, the business office, purchasing, personnel office, departmental administration, and library services and materials.

It is the policy of Lake Superior State University to include an amount for indirect overhead costs in all budgets for grants and contracts unless expressly prohibited by the grantor agency or unless the President or Vice President waives recovery of indirect costs. (§1.4.2 of the Procedures Manual). The federally-negotiated indirect cost rates for the University are:

  1. On-campus projects: 56 percent.
  2. Off-campus projects: 23 percent.

These rates are in effect until amended. When a change in rates is negotiated, the Director of Sponsored Programs shall notify interested parties of the new rate.

A copy of the federally-negotiated agreement is available in the Office of Sponsored Programs.

"LSSU is a relatively small school and I believe for this reason I have received a better education. The close atmosphere as opposed to a larger university has provided me with an opportunity to become acquainted with my professors. The professors therefore have an opportunity to assist with problems fairly easily, especially in upper level classes. The classes are fairly small also which provides one on one conversations which is very helpful."
