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. The minimum award is $50,000 of direct costs. There is no maximum price limit for the instrument; however, the maximum award is $600,000 of direct costs.
Types of instruments supported include, but are not limited to: X-ray diffractometers, mass spectrometers, nuclear magnetic resonance, spectrometers, DNA and protein sequencers, biosensors, electron and light microscopes, cell sorters, and biomedical imagers.
Amount per Award: $50,000-$600,000 of direct costs
Duration of Award: 1 Year – Earliest start date is February 1, 2020
Number of Awards: ORIP intends to commit about $35 million in FY 2020 to fund an estimate of 75 awards
There is no limit on the number of applications an institution may submit, provided the applications are for different types of equipment. The NIH will not accept duplicate or highly overlapping applications under review at the same time.
Multiple applications from UW–Madison for similar instruments require official administrative assurance that such requests are a coordinated institutional effort and not unintended duplication. For this reason, Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research & Graduate Education review of the equipment requested is required.
This is not an internal competition.
