On occasion, funds are made available to PRISM faculty mentors for the purchase of large equipment items. The intention is that purchased equipment will enhance student research and learning. The current Request for Proposals was distributed on December 3, 2014 and applications must be received by Monday, February 16, 2015. See the linked document for details on what can be funded, proposal format, and other relevant information.
Mentors currently working with students are eligible to receive funding for the purchase of materials. Please consult with Dr. Edgardo Sanabria-Valentin about how to receive this funding.
Mentors traveling to conferences are also eligible for travel reimbursement, at a rate of $1,000 per academic year. Funding is restricted to travel where you are accompanying students.
