Clemson Major Research Instrumentation Program

The Clemson Major Research Instrumentation (CU-MRI) Program provides financial support from the Division of Research to Clemson University researchers for the purchase or replacement of major research equipment or an upgrade of major research equipment that will likely impact funding, scholarship and research productivity, and the probability of increased extramural funding. For the purposes of this program, major research equipment is defined as a unit having a useful life of at least five years and an acquisition cost of more than $50,000.
