Equipment Loan Program Call 2018-2019

The Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience (FUN) is pleased to announce the Call for Proposals for the 2019 Equipment Loan Program.  Annually, the FUN Equipment Loan Program works through collaborations with equipment vendors to develop opportunities for neuroscience faculty to offer their products, services, and training's on their equipment for up to a two-year loan with the intent to purchase the equipment at the end of the grant program. 

Through generous donations from ADInstruments (ADI), Data Sciences International (DSI), Noldus Information Technology (NIT), and San Diego Instruments (SDI) we are now accepting applications for proposals requesting a loan for equipment supporting  faculty research and/or teaching for FUN members.  A complete list of equipment that will be available for loan during this grant program cycle and application information can be found in the link:

Please note that only single versions of the equipment listed below are available for loan at this time – it is not possible to request multiple pieces of a single item (unless otherwise noted or the awardee is seeking to purchase these additional pieces of equipment beyond the terms of the FUN Equipment Loan Program).

All current dues-paying members of FUN are eligible to apply for this program. If you are not a member and would like to become one, please go to and go to the member’s link to register.

Grant program applications will be submitted electronically as a single pdf file to the Co-Chairs of the ELP program: and  

The deadline for the FUN 2018 Equipment Loan Program application submission is: January 14th, 2019 11:59 pm (PST). Awards will be announced in February 2019. 

Please feel free to contact Lorenz or me with any questions or concerns. We are trying to bring new vendors to the program and have some verbal commitments that will hopefully materialize in the next cycle, but if you have specific contacts with vendors or research needs please let us know and we will do our best to grow the program.
