The following is detailed information about the modifications.

Part 2. Section II. Award Information
Other Award Budget Information

Other Program-Related Expenses

Current language:
For new applications, institutions may request up to a maximum of $12,500/student participant for Other Program-Related Expenses. For renewal applications, institutions may request up to a maximum of $10,500/student participant for Other Program-Related Expenses.

Consultant costs, equipment, supplies, travel for key persons, and other program-related expenses may be included in the proposed budget. These expenses must be justified as specifically required by the proposed program and must not duplicate items generally available at the applicant institution.  Costs of student academic skills development workshops (e.g., problem-solving, communication, time management, and grant-writing) are allowed, but these costs must be reasonable and well justified. Costs of research supplies and participant travel to training or national scientific meetings are allowed. Travel expenses are also allowed for the program staff [program director(s) and program coordinator(s)] to attend one training or national scientific meeting per year and should be included in the budget.

In addition, limited program evaluation costs are allowed up to a maximum of $3,000 for the 5-year project period.

Revised language:
For all applications (new or renewal), institutions may request up to a maximum of $10,500/student participant for Other Program-Related Expenses. 

Consultant costs, equipment, supplies, travel for key persons, and other program-related expenses may be included in the proposed budget.
