"Dr. Castro has graciously announced a $300 grant available for spring 2016 DISCOVERe students who have not previously used tablet grant funds. Students must purchase
the device at the Kennel Bookstore to receive the grant. As in previous semesters, students are responsible for paying the remainder beyond what the grant provides. There are currently no grants planned for fall 2016 DISCOVERe courses. However, the President has asked the Provost and Chief Information Officer to recommend a plan for long-term financial sustainability
for the future of DISCOVERe."
