Apply to Modify your Project

In the Student Technology Fund's award notification, grantees are informed of whether their project is funded fully or partially, and if there are any restrictions to how the funding can be applied to the proposed budget. 

Unless otherwise specified in the award notification, it is expected that:
1.  Grantees will spend per the line items in their application's budget.

2.  Multi year projects are allowed if they apply as such.  Otherwise, all funding will be spent within the fiscal year in which it was received.  At UC Berkeley, the fiscal year starts July 1st and ends June 30th the following year.  See the table below.
