PDC Research Application
Research grant funding cannot be used for the following:
Computers, Tablets, or Notebooks
Gift cards or cash
Applying for software adds several more layers to the approval process and may delay awarding of funds. Please contact IT before requesting funds for software. Any software owned by the university already cannot be purchased.
All materials are subject to review by areas outside of the PDC. Please be aware that the PDC can only approve the application and occasionally the committee may find that certain items cannot be funded under university, local, state, or federal guidelines. The PDC will work to assist you with alternatives if possible. Additionally, as all funds are part of a larger grant, the committee may occasionally need to find answers to questions that have not yet be asked in the past. This will add to the time of approval.
