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.
Specific items may be recalled for DOE use and become unavailable through the program after the equipment appears on the availability list. Applications for available equipment should only be submitted by an eligible, non-profit educational institution. Please see the Frequently Asked Questions page for more information.
If you would like to donate laboratory equipment to the LEDP program, your organization must be sponsored by the Department of Energy and approved for access through the GSA property disposal system.
