Seed Grants

EEB’s Seed Grant Program aims to support our faculty as they develop external research proposals. The seed grant program prioritizes projects that bring together new ideas and collaborations. Core EEB faculty are eligible to submit seed grant proposals with a maximum request of $20k per project.

A formal call for proposals is announced during spring terms. The seed grant committee reviews and rank all proposals and funds are dispersed to selected projects in April. Proposals may be considered off-cycle if external deadlines necessitate a different timeline. Questions can be directed to the committee co-chairs: Lars Brudvig and Kay Holekamp.
