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 highly competitive proposals for extramural funding. 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.
We expect to make at least 10 awards at a maximum of $70,000 per award in the 2019-20 academic year.
