Seed Grant Program

The Seed Grant Program is a crucial mechanism by which we foster population-related research

About the Program

The Seed Grant Program at Maryland has five goals for the development of faculty research:

  1. to facilitate the development of strong individual research proposals, especially NIH and NSF applications
  2. to support junior faculty in proposal development
  3. to encourage faculty in allied fields or faculty who have not previously sought funding from NIH to develop grant proposals
  4. to encourage grant development that involves faculty from more than one discipline
  5. to support high-risk / high-return projects or projects where time-sensitive funding is needed.

Program Guidelines

The 2019-20 Seed Grant Proposal Guidelines are available by reviewing the RFP, which is also available for download.


Submit your proposal using the Seed Grant Proposal Submission Form. For information, contact , Development Core Director.
