No special charge this year.


The research and grants committee reviewed 40 grants requesting $405,055.08.  We awarded  $176,397 ($150,000 in FY09 funds and $26,397 in FY08 funds) in 25 grants to 26 faculty researchers.  The committee has the following recommendations for next year’s committee:



The committee recommends that:

1.      In lieu of 1/9 of salary, a stipend of $5000 be awarded to grant recipients.

2.      In advertising of the grant opportunity, state that we do not fund international travel.  These funds should be sought through OIE.
