The Department of Defense (DoD)
Fiscal Year 2013 Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP)
Full Proposal Deadline: September 28, 2012
DURIP is designed to improve the capabilities of U.S. institutions of higher education to conduct research and to educate scientists and engineers in areas important to national defense by providing funds for the acquisition of research equipment. This announcement seeks proposals to purchase instrumentation in support of research in areas of interest to the DoD, including areas of research supported by the administering agencies.
Through this DURIP competition, the DoD intends to award approximately $42 million for FY 2013, subject to the availability of funds. These funds will be awarded via grants made by the Army Research Office, Office of Naval Research, and Air Force Office of Scientific Research. Grants will be for the purchase of research equipment costing $50,000 or more, which typically cannot be purchased within the budgets of single-investigator awards. With few exceptions an individual award may not exceed $1,500,000 in DoD funding.
Sufficient funds are not available to meet all the instrumentation needs of universities. Awards, therefore, will be made to universities conducting, or being demonstrably capable of conducting research (with the proposed new equipment) in areas of interest to the DoD. DURIP awards are typically one year in length.
There are no limits to the number of applications an applicant may submit.
