Notes from December 2009

RACC Awards Two Grants to Empty Quarter

December 20, 2009

The other night, I returned to the apartment from a long day of work to find a rain soaked envelope sitting at the front door. I could see the envelope had a RACC logo, and judging from its size I could tell it was not a rejection letter. The contents of the envelope indicated that Empty Quarter had been given two awards. We had basically shelved the project until funds could be secured, and was delighted by this news, especially after wondering if we could manage to finish the project within the next 1-2 years. We are grateful to the panelist who could see the value of our project, and granted the much need resources to help bring us to completion.
