DURIP is designed to improve the capabilities of accredited U.S. institutions of higher education to conduct research and to educate scientists and engineers in areas important to national defense by providing funds for the acquisition of research equipment or instrumentation. DURIP funds must be used for the acquisition of major equipment or instrumentation to augment current, or develop new, research capabilities. Proposals may request funding for more than one item if the requested items comprise a “system” that is used for a common research purpose. Requests for computing equipment for DoD-relevant research programs are appropriate and eligible for funding.
Proposals must address the impact of the equipment or instrumentation on the institution’s ability to educate students through research in disciplines important to DoD missions. DoD’s areas of research interest are listed in the broad agency announcements of the individual agencies:
