Seed Grant Program

The Seed Grant program is sponsored by the UI Office of Research and Economic Development. The program’s objectives are to promote research, outreach, and creative activities in all branches of learning that will improve competitiveness for external funding, and/or which will result in publications, patents, or exhibitions/performances appropriate to the PI’s discipline. The primary purpose of the program is to support early career faculty establishing a scholarly program; early career faculty are those who have been at the UI 5 years or less and/or are still Assistant Professors.  Proposals that support a change in direction for established investigators will also be considered, but must be well-justified.
