  • Description of the educational instruction or research benefits if this proposal is funded.
  • Detailed budget listing total technology equipment cost.

2. Attach the following supportive documentation to the end of the proposal packet:

  • Technology equipment specifications, descriptions and vendor cost quotes.
  • A table/list of all the faculty users of the proposed technology equipment.
  • Include a statement of support from the applicant’s Department Chair. If the Department is providing matching funds, this statement should include that figure.

Applications that are complete will be evaluated for merit by either the Ad Hoc Committee on Research for proposals inclusive of a research component or the Faculty Welfare Committee for proposals focused on instruction. Awards will be announced within six weeks of receipt of the application.
