For assistance: A suggested rationale for funding could read:

"The practicum will impact the institution through: (i.e. improved retention methods, the development of a program evaluation model, increased knowledge of assessment and placement, improved tutor training techniques, the implementation of Supplemental Instruction, etc.)"

A justification would indicate that the expenses for attending the Kellogg Institute would be more economical than a conference because of the extensive amount of content covered, graduate credit may be awarded, an applied practicum project is developed to benefit the participant's institution, research and publication is encouraged, and a comprehensive network of developmental education professionals is developed. Funds from either fiscal year can be used.
