Shared Instrumentation Grant (SIG) Program (S10)
Deadline: May 31, 2018
Amount: An instrument with a base cost of $50,000 to $600,000
The Shared Instrument Grant (SIG) Program encourages applications from groups of NIH-supported investigators to purchase or upgrade a single item of expensive, specialized, commercially available instruments or integrated systems that cost at least $50,000. There is no maximum price requirement; however, the maximum award is $600,000. Types of instruments supported include, but are not limited to: X-ray diffractometers, mass and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrometers, DNA and protein sequencers, biosensors, electron and light microscopes, cell sorters, and biomedical imagers.
There is no limit on the number of applications that Emory University may submit provided, however, that the applications are for different types of equipment. If two or more applications are submitted for similar equipment from Emory, we must provide documentation stating that that the submissions are not an unintended duplication, but are part of a campus-wide institutional plan.
Note: Please view the High-End Instrumentation Grant Program for instrument over $600,000.
