Major equipment grant program in biomanufacturing and biosciences

K-State received funding from the state of Kansas to support biomanufacturing training and Education. Some of the funding will support equipment acquisition to support research and/or teaching activities in biomanufacturing, related biosciences, and enabling technologies.

A total of $1M is available. The Office of the Vice President for Research is providing funding in the range of $100,000 to $250,000 and departments/colleges must provide a 25% match on top of the requested funds. This match could be part in-kind if it represents part of the salary of a technician (permanent staff person, not a grad. student or postdoc) that would maintain and operate the instrument.

Fuding applications were due October 15, 2023 and award announcements were made on November 15.
