OVPR Seed Grant Program

The OVPR Seed Grant Program aims to give Stony Brook University faculty a competitive edge in securing external research funds by supporting and fostering innovative scientific and scholarly activities that will lead to the development of proposals with a greater likelihood of success. Competitive seed grant applications must provide strong evidence that the proposed research topic is aligned with existing or upcoming funding priorities. The types of projects proposed can range from proof of concept or feasibility studies, to the development of new, interdisciplinary teams leading to the formation of large, collaborative research projects. Applicants can be single PI or multiple PIs and the typical project lengths should be 12-18 months. Proposals should provide a clear timeline to the submission of a proposal to an external sponsor within 18 months.
