Program Description

The RTI Grants Program provides the primary avenue for university researchers in the natural sciences and engineering to obtain up to $150,000 in support for research tools and instruments with a net cost between $7,001 and $250,000. Net cost is defined as the purchase cost of the equipment after any discount from the vendor and before taces, customs and importaion fees, transportation and shipping charges, and assembly and installation costs. Vendor discount must be free of conditions, restrictions, or limitations (e.g., cannot be offered in exchange for services from users benefiting the vendor company). There is no longer an institutional quota, but researchers can only submit one RTI application per competition, either as an applicant or a co-applicant, but not as both. There is no NOI for this program.
