High Priority Area Research Seed Grants DOR/PROVOST FACULTY RESEARCH INVIGORATION PROGRAMS HIGH PRIORITY AREA RESEARCH SEED GRANTS

The vice president for research and the provost are continuing a program to invigorate the University’s research enterprise through targeted investment of seed research funds in high priority areas (see the examples in Figure 1). The purpose of this program is to provide research labs and groups with funds that would permit submission of competitive research proposals.

The seed funding grant program is closely tied to the five institutional thrusts that the vice president for research and the provost have developed in consultation with college deans, and which the chancellor endorsed: (1) physical and cyber security, (2) drug discovery and development, (3) sustainable communities and infrastructure, (4) accessible health care and (5) energy transition and security.
