Process for requesting up to $10,000 for GSS Concept Development

We expect that these funds will be used to further the development of an existing or new GSS concept for submission for the Phase III competition (we will announce this competition in early 2018).  Examples of use of these funds include costs associated with liaising with external programs that you would like to emulate, meetings, curriculum development, proposal development, etc.

For the request please answer the following questions and be succinct:

1.  How much (up to $10,000) are you requesting?

2.  What will you use this money for?

3.  Please justify the need for these funds.

Send your request to Dr. Janet B. Webster,, (540) 230-9547.  Please do not hesitate to contact her if you have any questions.
