Core Facility Funding

CBSD Core Facilities operate on a fee-for-services, recharge system. Any UM Faculty wishing to use a Core Facility service, who qualifies under the voucher policy, may choose to apply for funding to cover the cost of services. Students, staff and other non-faculty researchers may have a faculty member submit a voucher application on their behalf. Applications for funding should be discussed with the Core Facility Director and/or manager, and are due at least six (6) business days before the 1st of each month. Approval of requests is subject to availability of funds. For more details, please review the complete voucher policy and application below.
