New Policy on Stipends Paid from Grants
Just got this info by Sarah Cuddy (an MBP Alumni for those who don't know her): "As of September 15, 2011, the federal granting agencies' existing regulations on minimum and maximum stipend levels paid from grants will no longer apply. The agencies will also no longer restrict researchers from using some of their grant money to provide supplements to scholarship holders. For more information please refer to section 8.2."
