Laboratory Equipment Donation Program

About LEDP

The Laboratory Equipment Donation Program (LEDP) was established by the United States Department of Energy (DOE) to grant surplus and available used laboratory equipment to full-time faculty at universities and colleges in the United States for use in energy oriented Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) educational programs. This program is managed by the Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS).

The listing of equipment available through LEDP is updated as new equipment is identified. It is available at no cost for a limited time and is granted on a first-received qualified application basis.

Who is eligible to apply for equipment?

Participation in the LEDP is limited to full-time faculty at accredited, postsecondary, non-profit degree granting institutions including universities, colleges, community colleges, or junior colleges located in the U.S. and interested in establishing or upgrading energy-oriented science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) educational programs. An energy-oriented program is defined as an academic education or research activity dealing primarily or entirely in energy-related topics.

To be eligible, applicants must be a full-time faculty member in STEM areas such as physics, chemistry, biology, engineering, environmental sciences, geology or geosciences, mathematics, materials sciences, or computer or computational sciences. A full-time faculty employee is defined as one who is considered to be a faculty member by his or her employing institution, is not characterized as having “adjunct” or “visiting” status, and who meets the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) definition of a full-time employee during the academic year in which application to the Laboratory Equipment Donation Program is made. The IRS defines a full-time employee as one who during a calendar month is employed on average for at least 30 hours of paid service per week or 130 hours of paid service per month.

Application reviews and grant awards are performed on a first-received, first-qualified basis.

How long will it take to find out if my application has been approved?

After you have submitted a completed application, it is sent to the respective DOE office for approval. The Organizational Property Management Officer (OPMO) has 14 days to review an application. When an application is approved, the OPMO notifies the grantee via e-mail. Unapproved application e-mail notifications will list the reason for the disapproval.
