Sponsored Participant

American Antiquarian Society

WPI sponsors eligible educational institutions to join UCAID for Internet2 access. Sponsored participants are educational institutions (including both not-for-profit and for-profit K-20, technical, and trade schools), museums, art galleries, libraries, hospitals, as well as other non-educational, not-for-profit or for-profit organizations that require collaboration on instructional, clinical and/or research projects with Primary participants or with other sponsored participants. Such organizations are either not eligible or not able to become an Internet2 member. Only Internet2 University members who are primary participants may sponsor a sponsored participant. WPI is an Internet2 University member. Sponsored participants are not responsible for membership dues to Internet2 and do not pay any fees to the Abilene Network. Sponsored participants are responsible for costs associated to the Abilene Connector or to transport (e.g., local loop) providers. These costs are at the discretion of their sponsoring Internet2 Regular Member who is an Abilene primary participant.
