Arizona Advanced Manufacturing Facilities GrantApplication

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 $75,000 per company), lowering the financial entry barrier by half.

How to Apply

To determine if the facilities and toolsets align with your company's needs, all interested applicants must contact Katie Smith, the Technical Sales Engineer from ASU's Core Research Facilities, at [email protected]. Additionally, please review the Eligibility & Guidelines before applying.


Grant funds are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Applications will be reviewed monthly by a panel of non-partisan judges and awarded based on current usage of less than $2,000, industry/startup fit, and use of funds.
