My guess would be at least 50% and when the grant is approved (in the
US university system at least) there is a substantial amount tacked
on that goes into the University general fund that doesn't go
directly to the project itself.
I went looking for a figure.
This is a bit dated, but I would be fairly sure it's accurate. It's
from Rutgers University in New Jersey. Note slide 20. On campus
research charges 55%, off-campus 26%, on campus training grants,
52.1, off campus 36%. There is a budget example on slide 23.

sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
