mediaX Members may provide additional funding for research; all research results arising from the use of the additional funding will be shared with all program members and the general public. Members may request the additional funding be used to support a particular area of mediaX research or Stanford faculty member that is identified on this website. mediaX membership fees provide unrestricted support for Stanford research activities, and may be used to supplement sponsored research activities at Stanford that are funded through sponsorship external to mediaX. The Faculty Director will determine how the additional funding will be used in the program’s research.
