AUDF offers OS X grants
The Apple University Development Fund (AUDF), a joint venture set up by Apple Computer Australia and the Apple University Consortium (AUC) to support and encourage development using Apple technology in education, says it to add to the base of more than 5,000 Mac OS X applications already available for the Macintosh and to provide new functionality. The AUDF was set up in recognition of the contribution and the creativity and skill of Macintosh developers on AUC campuses. "In 2004 the AUC will continue to focus on grants that extend the usefulness of Mac OS X to the higher-education community and in particular offer a new range of Challenge Grants for specific projects that the AUC would like to see."
The AUDF has been operating as a major benefit of the AUC for over 14 years
and has supported many important projects including the establishment of the
BAFTA award winning Interactive MultiMedia Lab (IMML) at the University of
Wollongong. Grant recipients in 2003 included; Dr Phillip McKerrow from the
University of Wollongong with his project "QuickTime VR World Modeller", Mr
Pascal Vuylsteker from the Australian National University for his project
"Access Grid Node Package to Mac OS X" and Dr Michael Bulmer from the
University of Queensland who received a Grant for his project "Automated
Generation of 'Virtual Humans' based on Anthropometric Data & Models".
