CVM Inside – Laboratory Animal Resources

Per Diem Schedule

LAR per diems are subject to inflationary increases. Please budget for an annual increase in rates of up to 3% when budgeting for grants. The increase will not be added unless necessary but it is best to be prepared. In some cases, Bridging money may be available to help researchers who need assistance with animal care costs.

To inquire about rates, please contact LAR Administrative office at 513-2050 or email laroffice@ncsu.edu.
