how the recipient of the grant will be decided
All submissions will be judged equally. All submissions will be given a unique identification number. These numbers will then be fed into a random number generator. A number will then be generated randomly and the corresponding submission will be the recipient of the grant.
- The research equipment grant is effectively an up to $3000 discount from the purchase of scientific equipment from Edaphic Scientific. Therefore, you can submit an application for equipment that may cost in excess of $3000 however you must have pre-existing funding to fill the gap. For example, if a piece of research equipment costs $5000, Edaphic Scientific will cover $3000 and you must have funding to cover the remaining $2000. Edaphic Scientific is essentially offering a $3000 discount on a quote to you for scientific equipment you need for your research.
- If the quote in your grant submission is for a total less than $3000, Edaphic Scientific will only cover the quoted amount at the time of grant funding. Edaphic Scientific is not offering credit under any circumstance or will not provide any difference in the quoted amount and $3000 on a future quote.
- Edaphic Scientific will also cover the costs of freight and delivery of the equipment to your location.
- If you are the recipient of the research grant, you must provide a purchase order for the equipment citing the quote number you were given during the submission process. The purchase order must be provided no later than 9th June 2017.
- Delivery of equipment will be made within 8 weeks from the 9th June 2017.
- The equipment grant is strictly non-transferable and only available for items clearly listed on your quote.
- The grant is not available in conjunction with any other offer or existing discount from a quote. Edaphic Scientific is not offering a grant on a discounted item.
