Department of Defense – Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP). (Due in summer)
A central purpose of the DURIP is to provide equipment and instrumentation to enhance research-related education in areas of interest and priority to the DoD. Therefore, your proposal must address the impact of the equipment or instrumentation on your institution’s
ability to educate students through research in disciplines important to DoD missions.
Department of Energy – Laboratory Equipment Donation Program (LEDP) (Proposals accepted at any time)
DOE, in accordance with its responsibility to encourage research and development in the energy area, awards grants for used energy-related laboratory equipment.
National Institutes of Health – Shared Instrumentation Grant (SIG) Program (S10) (Announced in December, Due in May)
The SIG Program encourages applications from groups of NIH-supported investigators to purchase or upgrade a single item of expensive, specialized, commercially available instruments or integrated systems that cost at least $50,000. There is no maximum price requirement; however, the maximum award is $600,000. Types of instruments supported include but are not limited to: X-ray diffractometers, mass and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometers, DNA and protein sequencers, biosensors, electron and light microscopes, cell sorters, and biomedical imagers.
National Institutes of Health – High-End Instrumentation (HEI) Grant Program (S10) (Announced in December, Due in May)
The HEI Grant Program encourages applications from groups of NIH-supported investigators to purchase or upgrade a single item of expensive, specialized, commercially available instruments or integrated systems that cost at least $600,001. The maximum award is $2,000,000. Types of instruments supported include but are not limited to X-ray diffraction systems, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and mass spectrometers, DNA and protein sequencers, biosensors, electron and confocal microscopes, cell-sorters, and biomedical imagers.
National Science Foundation – Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI) (Due in January)
The MRI program assists with the acquisition or development of a shared research instrument that is, in general, too costly and/or not appropriate for support through other NSF programs.
National Science Foundation – CISE Research Infrastructure (CRI) (Preliminary proposal due in November, full proposal due in January)
The CISE Research Infrastructure (CRI) program drives discovery and learning in the core CISE disciplines of the three participating CISE divisions by supporting the creation and enhancement of world-class research infrastructure that will support focused research agendas in computer and information science and engineering. This infrastructure will enable CISE researchers to advance the frontiers of CISE research.
