General Guidelines
Metropolitan Center grants are ordinarily intended as seed money for new projects or as supplements to other income. As the Center rarely provides full support of large-scale activities, applicants are urged to seek funding from other agencies as well. Grants to doctoral candidates ordinarily supplement other sources to a maximum (from all sources) of $22,000 for a single student, $27,000 for a couple.
