Has anyone had any experience with the Soley Institute 2

Hi all,

I am thinking of applying for a grant from the Soley Institute (http://www.soley.cn/) to test algal growth in different PBR's.

Has anyone here won a grant or does anyone know someone who has won a grant from them? I ask because in my mind some things don't quite add up with Soley. For instance they are based in Turkey but they use a chinese (.cn) email address. Also if you win a grant they expect you to forward them a sum of money based on USA taxes, which in itself doesn't seem right (to me at least). Of course they want the money up front before you get anything.

I'm not saying they are a scam, however I find it extremely unusual that there is nothing on the web about Soley except for some unsubstantiated claims of scam.

Any help would be sincerely appreciated.
