Eligible Expenses-This grant is intended to promote new lines of research, so budgets that reflect this value accordingly will be more competitive.

Branch Out offers other grants to financially support student (undergraduate and graduate) salaries, so this will be an ILLEGIBLE expense for the MS NeuroCAM Seed Grant. Please consider having students who may work on the project separately apply for those grants.
