SEA has an endowment of ~$250K/yr to spend on equipment. The SEA board will decide which tools have the potential for the greatest research impact.
Proposals for new equipment should broadly benefit the Rice research community and should be interdisciplinary and broadly applicable.
Full-time and research faculty members at Rice are eligible to apply. Proposals may be submitted individually or by a group of faculty.
SEA has limited available space, so please include possible locations to house the instrument in your proposal. Please go to https://goo.gl/forms/UQplgwU3NsnATqCy1 to complete instrument request form.
