The Research Instrumentation Fund (RIF) provides support to faculty and core facilities necessary research instrumentation purchases and upgrades/replacements. Research instrumentation purchased with RIF funds is meant to be shared as broadly as possible and must be used to facilitate externally funded research and scholarship. RIF only awards research instrumentation requests that fall into one of the below categories:
- Requests for new research instrumentation that will be leveraged to pursue external funding within one year of equipment installation.
- Requests for new research instrumentation that will increase competitiveness of an external funding proposal that was recently denied funding due to lack of specific research instrumentation or data produced by that instrumentation.
- Requests for upgrading or replacing existing, on-campus research instrumentation that is outdated, non-functional, or poses a safety/security risk to the UofU community.
Applications for the 2023-2024 RIF cycle are due by 11:59pm (MST) on Wednesday, January 10th, 2024. Interested applicants should thoroughly review all FY24 RIF Guidelines before preparing an application. Questions about this program should be directed to Whitney MacKay.
