Capital Exercise

Capital Exercise (CAP EX) Funds are derived from return of a portion of indirect costs returned to the Department of Medicine (DOM) from National Institute of Health (NIH)-funded projects. CAP EX funds should be expended on capital equipment as mandated by UW School of Medicine and Public Health rules. Historically, CAP EX funds have been returned proportionately to NIH-funded investigators.

When and how to apply?

Applications for CAP EX funds are requested annually early in the calendar year. Policies regarding applications and the CAP EX application form will be included in the announcement.
