Deadlines set for OVPR incentive grant proposals, equipment programs

May 24, 2012

The deadlines to apply for new incentive and research-equipment grants offered through the Office of the Vice President for Research are in September.

This spring, the office announced programs that will provide grants to West Lafayette faculty members for new research, for laboratory research equipment, and for nonlaboratory research infrastructure and equipment.

The deadline to submit letters of intent for incentive grants -- which will provide up to $300,000 for interdisciplinary research or up to $100,000 for single-disciplinary efforts -- is Sept. 6.  The deadline to submit letters of intent for the laboratory research equipment program is Sept. 5; that program is limited to requests of $100,000 or less.

The deadline to submit proposals requesting $5,000 or less for nonlaboratory research infrastructure and equipment is Sept. 12. Proposals requesting between $5,000 and $20,000 are due by Sept. 26.
