A faculty member can only partner with three students maximum during any given grant period.
PinS cannot fund DU tuition, Service Learning classes, lessons or student stipends. Summer grants can fund stipends.
PinS operates on a reimbursement system. Students are responsible for purchasing their own supplies and will receive a reimbursement with the proper documents. The URC office will not order or purchase supplies. A department or faculty member may purchase supplies for the student, in which case the URC office can do a budget transfer. Please contact the URC Coordinator, Holly MacKenzie (firstname.lastname@example.org or 871-4301) if you have any questions about budget policies.
Any supplies purchased become property of the department and will be given to the department at the conclusion of the project. Applicants understand that products generated through this grant will be considered the result of"substantial University assistance" subject to the university's intellectual property guidelines. Award money must be spent during the 10 week project period which is defined as the quarter for which the PINS grant is made. Any unused funds will be returned to URC at the end of the 10 weeks.
All project related expenses must be turned into the URC office:
For PinS-by the end of the quarter the award was granted
For Summer Research grants- Mid-August
If your department is purchasing supplies, please contact Holly MacKenzie to discuss payment or reimbursement options.
If you are a faculty partner to a student receiving a stipend in the Summer Research Grant:
You are responsible for making sure your student is working the number of hours indicated in their stipend request. If the student is not working their hours, please contact the URC office. Students are not eligible to begin work until they fill out the necessary paperwork and pass a background check, supplied by the URC coordinator.
If you have any questions, please contact Holly MacKenzie email@example.com or 871-4301.
