MinusTwo,

It will be a grant to form a focus group that asks for feedback on how helpful our Research News program is and ways to improve it. However, we will not know for some time whether we actually get the grant. We did have quite a few responses, and thank you all for your participation.

Going forward, please send any feedback/questions/comments regarding this in a PM to us, so that we can get this Research News thread back to news-only posts. Thank you in advance!
