Hi Shoba,

If there are no suppliers for the research materials available in the US, you can include them in your research proposal/budget. But you will have to provide supporting evidence to justify that these purchases cannot be made within the US and are essential to the success of the research. A lower price abroad when compared to a US supplier, however, is not a valid reason to purchase materials from abroad.

Hope this helps!
