  3. Zachary says:

    Are there still grants available for modeling research?



  4. sam Roberson says:

    Are the grants limited to members in the US. I am trying to develop modeling in the Australian curriculum.

  5. Colleen says:

    They are not limited to the US…the board will consider all proposals…but any research proposal that is approved will probably be evaluated on its potential benefit to the entire Modeling Instruction community.
