UHP Helium Allocation Request Program – August 2022 Application Portal

UHP Helium Allocation Request Program – August 2022 Application Portal
Click here to apply!

There is a global helium shortage that is reducing the amount of compressed helium the University of Utah receives each month. To engage this issue both in the short- and long-term, the University is launching a helium allocation request program to allocate the limited supply of helium we receive each month. Some of the compressed helium tanks we receive each month are marked for patient use; however, all remaining tanks will be allocated to the research community.

In the interest of providing a fair and equitable process, all researchers/units with helium needs are asked to regularly submit a 1-page request for helium. These requests will be reviewed and approved in priority order. This will need to be submitted by the 1st of each month via InfoReady. Each month’s competition will have a unique link. The VPR Office is currently building a temporary webpage that will house each month’s competition.

The 1-page request must effectively:

  • Identify the researcher/unit making the request
  • Identify the specific research need. If there are time sensitive elements, then please articulate that in your description.
  • Identify the amount of helium needed and a timeline for use.

The 1-page request should be single-spaced, 12-point, Time New Roman font. Applications for August are due by 5:00pm MST on August 1st, 2022. The August competition link can be found HERE. 

Important note: if you are looking for the July 2022 competition, please click HERE. Failure to apply to the correct competition may delay or disqualify your request.
