 USEF COMPUTER HARDWARE GRANT PROGRAM   

In order to provide a unique benefit to USEF competitions, and help promote the submission of electronic results, USEF has launched the 2007 Computer Hardware Grant Program.  In 2007 USEF upgraded all workstations throughout the entire organization, and instead of disposing of these workstations, they are being offered to competitions that may have a use for them.  Even though these workstations are three years old they are excellent for running Windows XP, but lack the resources to fully run Windows Vista.

Completed applications must be received no later than 10/31/07.  Approved applicants will not incur any charges or fees in relation to this grant program, and will be contacted by USEF to determine shipping information.  In addition to the hardware, USEF is also offering reimbursement of half the Operating System expense up to $100.  The supply is limited, thus applicants are limited to one workstation each.
