Facility Grants

IMR Facility Grants provide $2,000 to assist Ohio State University faculty with facility user access fees and related minor charges associated with conducting innovative materials-allied research with the goal of obtaining external research funding.


All Ohio State faculty and research staff with Principal Investigator status who work in any materials-allied field are invited to submit a proposal. Preference is given to faculty members who are not tenured, and to research conducted in one of IMR’s core materials research facilities.


Proposals consist of a cover page and 2-page description of the proposed research.  Facility Grants are an excellent training opportunity for post-candidacy graduate students, fellows, and postdoctoral fellows to co-author proposals, and we encourage faculty to engage their students and staff in their proposal development.


The deadline for the next competition is Thursday, November 30, 2017 at 5:00 PM.  Interested applicants should review the Request for Proposals below for details.  All proposals must use the Word template below for their submissions.
