Equipment Grants

If you require the help of DOR's proposal team, make sure you send an email with the request to at least five business days prior to the deadline.

The vice president for research and provost have initiated a program to invigorate the University's research enterprise by offering Equipment Grants. The purpose of the program is to support research labs and groups with modern equipment considered necessary for preparing competitive external research proposals. About 70% of the awards will be allocated for proposals in the five high priority areas (see the examples in Figure 1.). Another 30% will be for any relevant area selected by an investigator. Proposals will be considered for small equipment grants and can range up to $50,000.
