The University makes grant awards to students who apply for research funding. The awards are small, less than $500. The recipient students receive funding, use lab space and use faculty’s time.
Is this a level of resources not normally available or would it be considered normally available since anyone can apply?
Yes, this is an example of Material Support beyond the standard because it is a grant that very few students receive and because the students work closely with faculty in a way not normally available to all students.
