What qualifies as “life sciences” related equipment and supplies?

An eligible applicant must request funding to purchase equipment and/or supplies to support STEM education that prepares students with the skills needed for future employment in the life sciences. The “life sciences” are defined in the MLSC’s enabling legislation as “advanced and applied sciences that expand the understanding of human physiology and have the potential to lead to medical advances or therapeutic applications.” Requested equipment and/or supplies must be used to support science (e.g. biology, chemistry, physics), technology (e.g. robotics, computer science), engineering, and/or math. Earth and Space Science, as well as other curricula unrelated to life sciences are NOT eligible for funding.
