Licensing school project
I was assigned a task of visualising our school. I'm about 60% done, but I have a few questions regarding licensing. I searched but I cannot find specific info for my case.
It won't be sold, it may be available for download (I'm not sure about that, I'd have to ask, but personally I think it won't be available) and it will be used to show our school to potentional students. After I finish the project, it will belong to the school. I need to provide models, textures and the UE4 file with scripts and all the assets used as well as the final .exe. Is that possible?
Can I use the opening UE4 logo? If so, is there a downloadable template?
Do I need to put "[Product name] uses the Unreal® Engine. Unreal® is a trademark or registered trademark of Epic Games, Inc. in the United States of America and elsewhere. Unreal® Engine, Copyright 1998 – 2017, Epic Games, Inc. All rights reserved" to the credits page? If so, is there guideline for size/color? I'd like to use black ISOCPEUR font, because it would go nicely with my theme.
Thank you in advance.
If you want to use the logo, you need to fill out a trademark license, which you can do here.
The EULA gives you the right to sublicense your Product to a distributor to distribute in a manner consistent with the EULA. The distribution you describe seems consistent with the EULA.
You can assign your content to the school if you want, but the school can't own the UE4 bits within it. You can sublicense those to the school for distribution or they can take their own license (via the EULA).

As far as I know (but you probably want to hear it from Epic employee) you can use Unreal Engine free of charge in any project. Only if you have an income from UE4 projects you have to pay 5% royalties.
From FAQ :
How much do I have to pay for Unreal Engine 4?
UE4 is free to use, with a 5% royalty on gross product revenue after the first $3,000 per game per calendar quarter from commercial products. Read the EULA FAQ for more details. Contact us if you require custom terms.
About the logo, you can read about it on this page.
Is this about some indie game development?
