Dear FUN members,

The Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience (FUN) is pleased to
announce the *Call
for Proposals *for the 2020 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 trainings on their equipment for up to a two-year loan with
the intent to purchase the equipment at the end of the grant program. The
vendors are always willing to work with the scientists so please apply even
if you want a different version of the equipment listed here.

Through generous donations from *ADInstruments (ADI)*, *Data Sciences
International (DSI), Noldus Information Technology (NIT), Nikon, San Diego
Instruments (SDI) and Stoelting *we are now accepting applications for
proposals requesting a loan for equipment supporting neuroscience faculty
research and/or teaching for FUN members. A complete list of equipment that
is available for loan during this grant program cycle is in the
attachment. *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
*www.funfaculty.org/drupal/* <https://www.funfaculty.org/drupal/>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: divya.sitaraman at csueastbay.edu
and neuwirthl at oldwestbury.edu. <neuwirthl at oldwestbury.edu> The deadline for
the FUN 2020 Equipment Loan Program application submission is: *February
29th, 2020 11:59 pm (PST)*. Awards will be announced in March 2020.
Application instructions are in the attachment.

In the last year we had very few applications and if we dont show demand
for equipment we might lose our vendors who have supported us for more than
a decade. Previous FUN ELP awardees have published with the equipment and
also used data for successful grant submissions.

Please spread the word about this program to your department and scientific
society mailing lists as the more interest we get the better we are
positioned to attract new vendors.

If you dont see something that you want in the attached list of equipment,
let me or Lorenz know and we will work with the vendors to make it happen.
The application call and materials can also be found on:

Please email us (*Divya Sitaraman:  divya.sitaraman at csueastbay.edu
<divya.sitaraman at csueastbay.edu> or Lorenz Neuwirth:
neuwirthl at oldwestbury.edu <neuwirthl at oldwestbury.edu>*) if you have any
questions and we look forward to your proposals for 2020 equipment loan.
