The New Faculty Seed Grant program encourages new, junior level faculty to develop research, scholarly, or creative programs

The Office of Research and Office of the Provost support the annual New Faculty Seed Grants to help junior faculty develop research, scholarly, or creative programs that lead to sustained professional development and extramural funding. This program supports projects that will significantly contribute to the PI’s long range goals by kick-starting a more complex project or idea. Projects with a strong potential to lead to significant external funding and/or PI portfolio development are encouraged.


The 2021 application cycle begins November 1. A Notice of Intent is required and must be submitted by 5pm December 4, 2020 in order to be considered for this program. Full proposals are due February 15, 2021 by 5pm.


RFP: The 2021 Guidelines and Application will be available in the fall. Feel free to review the 2010 Seed Grant Guidelines and Application. If you have any questions concerning the guidelines, proposal or review process, please contact the program coordinator: Emily Brashear at
