Unidata offers computer equipment grants to support a variety of projects
The Unidata Program Center is pleased to announce the opening of the 2022 Unidata
Community Equipment Awards solicitation. Created under the sponsorship of
the National Science Foundation, Unidata equipment awards are intended to
encourage new members from diverse disciplinary backgrounds in the geosciences
to join the Unidata community, and to encourage existing members to continue
their active participation, enhancing the community process. For 2023, a
total of $100,000 is available for awards; proposals for amounts up to $20,000
will be considered.
Past recipients of Unidata equipment awards have used the grants to procure equipment
for data sharing, to create interactive data visualization laboratories,
and to encourage the use of Unidata software packages in research and education.
The proposal process is designed to be as low-impact as possible, with just a few
required elements. You can view previously accepted proposals, and take advantage
of a short proposal template if you choose. Staff at the Unidata Program Center are
happy to help you define the hardware requirements for your project or answer any
other questions you may have while preparing a proposal.
