We have received inquiries from faculty asking if the amount of the stipend could be higher than $10,000 if the amount of the stipend is significantly more than $400,000. VSE certainly wants the stipend to reflect the scale of the lab and to provide further incentives for faculty to grow their labs. With that in mind, attached is a revision of the Chartered Labs memo issued earlier this month. VSE now offers a $15,000 stipend if annual lab expenditures are $750,000 and $20,000 if annual lab expenditures are $1,000,000.  Everything else remains the same as in the original memo.
