The Board of Regents Support Fund (BoRSF) offers several programs to support research and graduate activities for Louisiana Universities. With these funds, Louisiana Tech has been able to secure funding for student computer labs, seed money for new researchers, and outreach for our future students. The Board of Regents also offers additional funding outside of support fund opportunities by partnering with EPSCoR agencies and other state-led initiatives. Significant accomplishments in research and education have been possible through Board of Regents' funding.
