The Arizona Advanced Manufacturing Grant provides discounted pricing for access to an ecosystem in Arizona to lower the barrier to startup innovation and growth in semiconductors. It provides shared semiconductor fabrication and characterization equipment with pilot-scale capabilities for those companies that are not presently users or are small users of the facilities. We will provide a 1:1 match of ASU’s Core Facility usage (up to $75,000 per company).


Applications will be reviewed monthly and awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until funding is completed.
