Micromeritics has recently launched an Instrument Grant Program intended to provide materials characterization instruments to non-profit universities and research organizations for the purpose of fostering and supporting meritorious research projects.
Micromeritics is now accepting applications for its newly instituted Instrument Grant Program. Researchers at non-profit universities and institutions will now have the opportunity to acquire the use of expensive particle characterization instrumentation not generally available through other means.
Types of instrumentation that will qualify as Donated Equipment include particle size analyzers, gas adsorption analyzers, mercury porosimeters, gas pycnometers, and chemisorption instrumentation. Since the nature and scope of the instruments that may be requested will vary, it is anticipated that the value of awards will vary also.
Major recipients of a Program Grant of the Donated Equipment may include individual researchers or a group of researchers within the same department or from several departments at one institution. In addition, the Donated Equipment may be donated for shared use by two or more institutions provided that the grant application demonstrates the feasibility of such shared use.
The president of the company has set up a special committee to review the merits of all applications. A maximum of one instrument/integrated system will be awarded per calendar quarter. Program Grants are also limited to a maximum of one instrument/integrated instrument system per application. Applications may be submitted at any time in accordance with the application instructions. Applications are good for a period of one year from the date of submission.
