2007 Stipend Recipients

Every year the Department of Information Technologies awards IT Faculty Technology Stipends to UMaine faculty. These stipends are to compensate for the extra time and effort needed for faculty members to develop technology-based resources for their courses. Between 12-15 awards are made annually. The stipends range from $1,000 to $1,250 each.

The winners of the 2007 IT Faculty Technology Stipends are listed below. The projects were presented at the 2007 Faculty Technology Fair on October 12, 2007.
