President Stanley, with additional support from Brookhaven Science Associates, sponsors the Seed Grant program for joint initiatives between scientists from Stony Brook University and Brookhaven National Laboratory. The Office of Brookhaven National Laboratory Affairs at Stony Brook University administers the program. The program solicits joint proposals in the beginning of each year for submission in early April. Winners are announced in early May. Typical proposal budgets are between $30,000 and $50,000. Funds are expected to be spent within 18 months. The Seed Grant program has been in place for sixteen years.
Call for Applications 2015
The Seed Grant program serves to foster collaborative efforts between scientists at the University and BNL. It is a key element for developing synergistic activities that can grow joint research programs that are aligned with the strategic plans of both institutions. For this seventeenth year a pool of up to $200K will be distributed to proposals submitted jointly by SBU and BNL scientists.
Current major strategic initiatives are in Energy (Smart Grid, Energy Production and Storage), High-Performance Computing, the Joint Photon Science Institute (including structural biology), Cosmology and biological/life sciences imaging research. Proposals for enhancements in other BNL-SBU collaborations are also welcome. Successful proposals in areas of high interest to BNL may be eligible for matching funds from BNL.
Winning proposals are typically between $30k and $50k. Funds become available on July 1, 2015 and should be expended within 18 months of award; uncommitted funds will be returned to the program. All awardees will be required to provide a brief (2 page) progress report after 12 months and a brief final report (2 pages with references) on the results of the project and about the future opportunities that will become available in connection with the project.
The deadline for proposal submissions is Wednesday, April 8, 2015, by 5 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time). Selection of winning proposals will be announced in mid-May 2015.
