Seed Grant Programs

Seed Grant Programs
Seed Grant Programs support research and collaboration between the University of Maryland and the co-sponsoring institution. These programs include partnerships with the Smithsonian Institution, the University of Maryland Baltimore, the Future of Information Alliance, the National Cancer Institute, Leidos, and the University of Maryland Institute for Bioscience and Biotechnology Research. Seed grants encourage new teams of investigators to cross institutional and disciplinary boundaries, to enhance established collaborative teams to move to the next level in their research, to establish specific high impact research foci and/or generate preliminary data to support new areas of endeavor and to encourage research that leads to new funding opportunities. Guidelines and forms for Seed Grant Programs can be found on VPR's website.
