Capstone Project Funding

Capstone Project Funding

Budget Proposal Submission

Funding is available for Capstone Teams at an amount of $300 per project. Your team must submit a Capstone Budget Request Form by Jan. 18, 2019, the end of the first full week of spring semester classes, to secure funding for your project. You may submit a budget up to $300 and receive approval by Dec. 15. No requests over $300 will be honored until Jan. 18, after all proposals have been submitted. Your team may require more or less than $300. Budget approvals will be made on a case-by-case basis. Submit your budget proposal using the online form:

Managing your team's budget

Please note that your team is required to manage its own budget. An account balance sheet is provided below to aid in tracking your balance:

Purchasing items for your project

For purchases, the College is happy to order online items for you and distribute them to you once they arrive. To request that the College order items, submit a Purchase Request to labsupport@engr.uga.edu using the form below:

► Purchase Request Form

Please rename the form with your own information. When submitting requests to labsupport@engr.uga.edu, in the subject line, include your abbreviated project title or project number along with some descriptor of need (i.e. "order," "work space,", "tool request," “training”) along with the date. A support ticket number will be assigned.

Reimbursement

For items you obtain on your own or for travel expenses, the College is happy to reimburse you. Reimbursements for travel and non-travel are done through UGA’s OneSource System. Please view to the tutorial below for instruction:

Account information will be provided upon confirmation of budget proposal acceptance.

You must purchase your own in-town items (i.e. from Lowe's, Michael's, Athens Steel, etc). In addition, the college is unable to pick up items from local vendors for you unless there is an extenuating circumstance, for example a truck is needed for pick up. The college will NOT order items on your proposal unless you make a separate request – your proposal is just that, a proposal – not a purchase request.
