Student Projects as a Funding Source
Henson, Kerry L.
Journal of Information Systems Education, v21 n3 p291-298 Fall 2010
Prompted by restricted funding for a lab which supported student software development work on real-world projects, a contribution program was established to facilitate monetary support from the external clients. The paper explores the relationships between instructor, students and client and how a funding component can affect these ties. Instructors who follow the guidelines provided can be successful with such a fund raising approach, but specific legal, ethical and organizational entanglements may disrupt these relationships and so should be avoided.
