Research Equipment Reserve Funds (RERF) may be used to acquire, repair, renovate, or improve equipment directly used for research. The equipment may be inventoried capital equipment (defined as =>$5,000 per unit), or fabricated capitalized equipment. The budget this year is expected to be $400,000. 

Each college across campus will only be able to submit 2 (or 3 if one is cross college) proposals. Therefore, the College of Science will hold an internal selection process.
