Research Week 2021 Seed Grant Competitions

Research Week will be held October 11-15. Several sessions this year will focus on seed grant competitions to support individual and team research development. All competitions require written applications (Phase 1). Applicants selected to move on to Phase 2 will give an oral presentation of their ideas at their respective sessions during Research Week. After the presentations, a panel of judges will select the winners. In addition of being notified of the results that day, the winners will also be officially recognized during the awards ceremony on October 14.

Competitions include:

  • Multidisciplinary Team Planning Grant – An opportunity to win $50,000 plus a two-semester doctoral-level research assistant to develop an extramural center-type grant proposal, sponsored by the Office of Research and the Graduate School. Written applications are due September 13, 2021.
