NIH - High-End Instrumentation (HEI) Grant Program (S10)

PAR-16-053

 

The High-End Instrumentation (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 $600,000. 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.

NSF – Major Research Instrumentation Program

NSF 15-504

1/11/2017

Each MRI proposal may request support for the acquisition (Track 1) or development (Track 2) of a single research instrument for shared inter- and/or intra-organizational use.  Development efforts that leverage the strengths of private sector partners to build instrument development capacity at MRI submission-eligible organizations are encouraged.

       

NSF - Earth Sciences: Instrumentation and Facilities

NSF 15-516

Proposals accepted anytime

The Instrumentation and Facilities Program in the Division of Earth Sciences (EAR/IF) supports meritorious proposals for infrastructure that promotes research and education in the areas currently supported by the Division. Four major funding areas are considered:
1) Acquisition or Upgrade of Research Equipment;
2) Development of New Instrumentation, Techniques or Software;
3) Support of National or Regional Multi-User Facilities;
4) Support for Early Career Investigators.
In all proposals, a central goal should be to advance research and research training in the Earth sciences.

DoD  - Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP)

DURIP

TBA

This program is administered through the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the Army Research Office, and the Office of Naval Research. The DURIP program is for the acquisition of major equipment by U.S institutions of higher education to augment current or develop new research capabilities to support research in technical areas of interest to the DoD. DURIP is open only to U.S. institutions of higher education, with degree granting programs in science, math, and/or engineering. Proposing institutions should be seeking to purchase instrumentation in support of research areas of interest to the DoD, including areas of research supported by the administering agencies. Proposals to purchase instrumentation may request $50,000 to $1,500,000. Awards are typically one year in length. For details on the proposal submission process and further specifics on the DURIP
