Such changes may be necessary in response to the quality of applications received, the amount of funds awarded, or budget availability.

Budgets may not include equipment, capital expenditures, and charges for patient care/medical care, tuition, and rental costs of off-site facilities, scholarships or fellowships, food, medications, medical screening (such as blood glucose) or incentives/”give-aways” such as tee-shirts, key chains, etc.
