If you have any additional questions about the application process, please contact Anil Lilly at 718-951-5861 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If a proposal requires a new space on campus, it will not be considered unless the submitter FIRST obtains an appropriate location, approved by the administration for this use.
STF allocations are based on the proposal's good-faith estimates, which should preferably be based on actual price quotes where possible.
Proposals should include all related needs in one application. Do not submit multiple applications for smaller amounts of equipment that will serve the same purpose.
Please be sure to include copies of any quotations, estimates, suggested vendors, and sole vendor letters that may be required to facilitate the procurement, if approved.
