Amount Description

This is a one-year award of $30,000.  The funds can be used for either salary or expense support, but must be expended solely for the sponsored research project. No indirect costs will be covered. Generally, indirect costs would refer to costs such as electricity, water, internet services, janitorial services, etc., for which the award does not pay the institution at which you will conduct your research, but it is always best to speak with your Chair for guidance and procedures. The stipend is expected to cover the cost of the awardee presentation requirement which is listed below (i.e. no additional travel funds will be provided). The purchase of any equipment greater than $1,000 must be adequately justified in a budget justification section.
