I need to hire a part-time lab technician; will my grant pay for it?

Yes, if you've budgeted for the position. You can hire either a Middlebury student or someone with more experience, depending on your needs. Consult Human Resources to determine what the pay rate should be. If this position is not included in your awarded budget, though, you’ll have to contact the Grants Accounting Office and fill out an OPAS form.
