Subject Educational grants for Derby
Date Fri, 19 Nov 2004 16:40:22 GMT
I recently came across the following program which may be of interest to 
some of you.  Although the email talks about Eclipse, if you go to the 
web site, you will see that they are including Derby in this grant 
program.  Here's the email I saw:

IBM is pleased to announce the IBM Innovation Grant program for 2005, 
with a broadened focus which includes topics related to run-time 
environments that can be targeted by Eclipse-based tools. Particularly 
encouraged are proposals that feature innovations in teaching, research 
or community building around Eclipse, Apache Derby open-source 
relational database management system, Autonomic Computing technologies, 
Scalability and Availability technologies, the Unstructured Information 
Management Architecture, and scripting environments such as PHP, Perl, 
and Python. Awards are valued in the range of US$10,000 to US$30,000 
each. Qualified faculty and researchers should submit proposals via the 
IBM Innovation Grants web site.

Key dates:
October 25, 2004: Online submission opens.
November 12, 2004: Evaluation begins for proposals submitted by this date.
November 26, 2004: Deadline for initiating a proposal.
December 2, 2004: Online submission closes at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. 
E-mail requests or proposals received after this date will be rejected.
