    5. The University Senate Research Committee may support expenses to present at  research and scholarly meetings.

    7. The purchase of equipment shall be permitted if it is clearly demonstrated that it is critical to a quality research project.
    8. The grantee shall submit a final report at the conclusion of the project to the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies and Research or designee.
