The Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI) catalyzes new knowledge and discoveries by empowering the Nation's scientists and engineers with state-of-the-art research instrumentation. The MRI Program enables research-intensive learning environments that promote the development of a diverse workforce and next generation instrumentation, as well as facilitates academic/private sector partnerships.
Institutions are limited in the number of applications they can submit to the MRI program. As with all such limited submission programs, PIs who wish to apply must first submit an internal application to the OVPR.
