ArizonaAdvanced Manufacturing Facilities Grant
The Arizona Advanced Manufacturing Facilities Grant (AMF) is a partnership with Arizona State University. The grant provides discounted access to ASU's established Core Facilities for semiconductor and hard-materials startup companies that are not current users or users with light facility usage. We will provide a 1:1 match of Core Facility usage (up to $50,000 per company), lowering the financial entry barrier by half.
ASU's core facilities provide state-of-the-art equipment, specialized services, and expert consultation and training to help solve pressing research challenges and help semiconductor companies on the path to commercialization. The three main facilities focusing on semiconductor applications are Advanced Electronics and Photonics, NanoFab and the Eyring Materials Center.
Grant funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications will be reviewed by a panel of non-partisan judges and scored on the criteria found on the Eligibility & Guidelines page. Applicants are encouraged to review before applying.
