Virtualization is being funded on campuses across the country. However, because there is no single “virtualization” grant program, universities that wish to obtain funding for the technology are required to articulate it either as an infrastructure project or as a part of a PI-led research project and evaluate prospective funders accordingly. 

Join Grants Office CEO Michael Paddock and special guests from NetApp as we highlight the best funding sources for virtualization projects and discuss what they each will require in order to support them. We will also review best practices for integrating a technology like virtualization into a proposal so that it supports the objectives of the project and strengthens the case for support.

Even when it’s not making headlines, school safety is on the minds of administrators, teachers, School Board members, parents, and students. And although a wide range of technology-based solutions have the potential to reduce risks to student safety, accelerate emergency response times, and provide critical data to first responders arriving at the scene of an incident, funding these technologies can be a challenge.

Join Grants Office CEO Michael Paddock and special guests from NetApp for comprehensive review of the grant programs that can support technology-based school safety initiatives. We will cover both formula and competitive programs at the federal and state levels, along with tips and resources to help you move your project forward.

 Everyone who registers will also receive a copy of the whitepaper, Funding School Safety Technology, full of information on the funding opportunities we discuss in the Webcast, along with helpful tips for developing a fundable school safety proposal.
