Technology Informatics Design Endeavour:
I still have balance from my last year’s grant, can I still apply for this year’s LIFE program?

COE's Answer:
Of course, you can use the balance to continue your center’s trainings.  If your center is selected as a 2010 grant winner, you would have an additional $15,000 to further support training activities.
