University Provost's Seed Grant Program
The Spring 2018 Seed Grant call for proposals will be released January/February 2018!
See preliminary Program Guidelines for important detailed information about the program. Guidelines are subject to change each year.
Seed Grant Program Summary
The University Provost (UP) Seed Grant Program is an annual competition for full-time faculty that seeks to cultivate research with the potential for extramural support. Seed grant recipients must each make a long-term commitment to work with an external mentor; prepare a full-scale extramural proposal to a nationally-recognized sponsor; subsequently evaluate the sponsor’s critique and, if not initially funded, prepare a revised application for the next available application cycle. Successful Seed grant applicants will be funded over a 12-month period (July - June), but should anticipate that the process for seeking extramural funding may extend beyond the funded project period.
The Seed Grant Application
The electronic Seed Grant Application Form and contact information can be found at the left-side navigation bar.
