SEED GRANT PROGRAM
We regret to inform the campus that our venerable Seed Grant program will be placed on hiatus for Fall 2014. There will be no competition for these awards this year, although the OVCR fully intends to resume the competition next fall. Several seed grants awarded for this fiscal year are ongoing.
Budgetary constraints, assessment of outcomes of the current program, and start-up commitments to the large cadre of new faculty joining our campus this and next academic year are responsible for temporarily holding back on this program.
TUITION ON GRANTS
Effective immediately, there will be no tuition budgeted on grant proposals. This is a temporary measure while the tuition on grants policy is evaluated by the Graduate Council. It is likely that a new tuition on grants policy will be adopted in the next fiscal year.
Awarded grants that have tuition budgeted should take steps to rebudget the tuition into other budget lines.
