OVPR Research Seed Awards
Category 1 Award: up to $50,000 for proposals with a single PI.
Category 2 Award: up to $100,000 for a group of two or more PIs from distinctly different disciplines who are initiating a new collaboration with the goal to establish an ongoing, long-term connection across disciplines that is expected to lead to substantial external research funding through multi-investigator or center types of grants.
Research Seed Funds are intended to support activities necessary to advance competitive research proposals, such as performing preliminary work and facilitating collaboration. It is expected that a competitive proposal for a sizable project will be submitted to an external funding organization within a year of the completion of the Research Seed Fund period.
