The Provost and the Vice President for Research have initiated a program to invigorate the university research enterprise through targeted investment of Equipment Grants. The purpose of the program is to support research labs and groups with funds that would permit submission of competitive external research proposals. About 70% of the awards will be allocated for proposals in the four high priority areas (see details in the figure below). Another 30% will be for any relevant area selected by an investigator. Proposals will be considered in two categories: small equipment grants can range up to $50,000; large equipment grants can range from $50,000-250,000.*
Proposals must be submitted by Monday, December 7, 2020, before 5 p.m. No late applications will be accepted.
