Academic Technology Grants
The Director for Academic Technology presented a summary of the scores for the 16 grant proposals. The committee discussed the results of the evaluation of the Academic Technology Grant proposals. As a result, the committee ranked each proposal into one of three tiers.
Tier I: The committee recommends that the proposal be funded 9 applicants(Wright, Mashanov, Watkins, Ramaji & Jiang, Butler & Lambert, and Race & Newton).
Tier II: The committee does not recommend the proposal to be funded 7 applicants at this time, but the project may be funded if the proposal is fixed and resubmitted (Lane, Binder, Connelly & Cummings, Cavanaugh et. al., and Kelso & Warusawithana).
Tier III: The committee considers that the project is not aligned the grant objectives or a serious flaw was found among 7 applicants (Goloborotko & John, Ohlson, McLeland et. al., Hamadi & Zhao, and Reddivari).
