The Apple University Development Fund (AUDF), a joint venture set up by Apple Computer Australia and the Apple University Consortium (AUC) to “support and encourage development using Apple technology in education,” today announced grants for 2004 totaling AUD$150,000. The fund was set up in “recognition of the contribution and the creativity and skill of Macintosh developers on AUC campuses.” The AUDF in 2004 is intended to foster new developments and to add to the base of more than 5,000 Mac OS X applications already available for the Macintosh and to provide new functionality.
