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 (before taxes, customs and importation fees, transportation and shipping charges, and assembly and installation costs). Net cost represents the cost of the equipment after any discount from the vendor. 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).
*NEW* - Researchers can submit one RTI application per competition, either as an applicant or a co‑applicant, but not as both. This requirement does not apply to Subatomic Physics applicants as their grant applications are reviewed and supported through a different multi-program envelope.
Agency Application Deadline: October 25, 2017
Applications must be submitted to the Office of Research a minimum of 5 business days in advance of the agency deadline along with the completed and signed Grant and Contract Form. Applications can be submitted to the Office of Research via Romeo or as a hardcopy.
