1. the researcher / researchers need equipment or machinery for their project
2. author / authors of a scientific book
3. Research equipment grants:
Those equipment or machinery needed by a professor in their papers which are not available at ZU, preferably benefiting as many as possible of professors
3. Students’ grants:
Those given to students of different faculties.
How to apply to students’ grants:
