BUILD Equipment Awards Program
The Mid-Size Equipment Program, funded through BUILD, provides the opportunity for BUILD faculty mentors to acquire equipment valued at less than $25,000 (with a $10,000 minimum) that is justified on the basis of direct benefit to BUILD student training. Awards up to $24,999 will provide support for the purchase of midsize equipment (equipment costing between $10,000 and $24,999; awards cannot be combined as part of the purchase of large equipment).
The Small Equipment and Computers Program, funded through BUILD, provides the opportunity for BUILD faculty mentors to acquire computers and/or small equipment (between $2,500-$10,000) that are justified on the basis of direct benefit to BUILD student training. Awards up to $10,000 will provide support for the purchase of lab computers and/or small equipment (equipment costing between $2,500 and $10,000; awards cannot be combined as part of the purchase of large equipment).
Award Features and Requirements:
Awards will provide support for the purchase of equipment. Awards cannot be combined as part of the purchase of large equipment. BUILD student participation and training need to be clearly integrated into the research plan for use of the equipment. Funds must be spent before May 30, 2020.
Restrictions and Limit on Number of Submissions: This award is limited to faculty who are part of the BUILD mentor pool. Preference may be given to proposals that benefit multiple BUILD students. An individual may be listed (PI or Co-Investigator) on only one proposal. Priority will be given to those PIs that have not received funding in the past. Individuals with three previous awards (CRSG or RSG grant, or equipment awards) are no longer eligible to apply.
The applications will be evaluated by the BUILD Internal Project Review Sub-Committee that includes broad representation across health-related research disciplines. Budgets must follow the same rules/spending limitations as federal grants.
