Academic Research Grant Application Form


Overview
NI is requesting proposals from academic institutes and research laboratories that are
committed to using LabVIEW and NI embedded hardware through a platform-based approach in
advanced research.
The NI Academic Research Grant Program is designed to provide assistance for researchers
planning to use National Instruments software LabVIEW and embedded hardware in a platformbased approach to advance their research. Winning proposals are eligible to receive up to
$50,000 USD or the equivalent in software, hardware, training, technical expertise, and support
winning government grants.
In addition, recipients of the grant may be listed on the National Instruments website with a
company logo and brief quote describing the significance of the technology under development.
Recipients must submit a case study paper and provide a narrated presentation to be featured
at the annual NIWeek conference.
