Equipment Grants

The purchase of items of equipment is not a high priority for the Trust, however, Trustees are willing to consider applications for urgently-needed new equipment where:

  • The equipment is of major strategic value to the University or new equipment for teaching
  • the equipment will have multiple uses, for more than one lab or Department and
  • is not otherwise available in Cambridge
  • at least two-thirds of the cost has been secured from other sources
  • there will normally be large-scale external funding and
  • an internal contribution, largely from the Departments concerned

The Trust is also willing to give a loan for equipment and for technical support in cases where applicants can be confident that these costs can be repaid from future external grants.

The Trust does not encourage applications for equipment grants in connection with projects that are funded by the Research Councils (applicants should instead apply to the University Capital Fund).

If the equipment is needed for a specific research project, then the application should follow the pattern of an application for a Project Grant.

Applicants in need of advice about a project’s eligibility should email the Director.
