Googled these two words together, but don't find much. First time heard it.(an ESL student)

Does it mean the grant has already been secured, or has other meaning?

added, File title as "Computer Program Grant Running Meeting Notes"

    Including the context that you came across it might help. Aug 30 at 18:23

    Absent some more context it's gibberish

  • @HotLicks It's not, if you've heard of "running notes" Aug 31 at 20:36
  • @AzorAhai-him-: But this parses as "notes" on a "running meeting", not "running notes"

"grant running" is not a phrase, you're not parsing it correctly.

The two phrases are "computer program grant" and "running meeting notes".

"Computer program grant" is a grant that supports computer programs.

"Running meeting notes" are meeting notes (i.e. minutes of the meetings) that are being produced continuously. The meetings are still going on, and these are the cumulative notes so far, as opposed to the final minutes when all the meetings are done.

So the entire thing means

Ongoing minutes of the meetings about the computer program grant.

    It could conceivably also be the phrases "Computer Program Grant Running" and "Meeting Notes". As in, meeting notes about running the grant related to the computer program. However, I do think your parsing is more likely. Aug 31 at 13:12

    Running meeting notes could also be notes about a whole series of meetings that are kept in one document, updated after each meeting. Or if your meeting spans several days, it could be updated daily or something. It doesn't need to be continuously, but it should have some variety of multiple updates. Aug 31 at 14:56

    @user3067860 That's essentially the same, just a matter of degree.

  • Grant could also be the name of the author of notes about a computer program.

  • @WBT it could even be an acronym for the name of the program (regardless of case). I've seen worse
