Who needs this type of web site?
Research award applicants who want to improve their chances for project funding, facilitate project completion, and enhance information dissemination.
Grant applicants often omit a project web site plan as part of their submission, which may affect their chances of securing the award. Award winners who omit a web site plan either omit a web site altogether or develop one that does not do justice to their project or to UCD.

What CITT will do for you.
CITT will develop a prototype web site for your award application, one that you can include in it. This site will include the name of your project and several front-page content items or images of your choice. The site will be an active site on the Internet, so award evaluators can reference it when they review your application.
What’s it cost?
Award applications should include at least $7200 for site development, with an additional $2400 for each year beyond the first project year, for site revisions.
