The Office of Research announces the FY2021 cycle for the Faculty Seed Grants in the Sciences: Social Sciences, Life Sciences, Physical Sciences and Engineering. The goal of the Faculty Seed Grants in the Sciences is to enable faculty to launch new, promising lines of research for which resources are currently not available. Grants are intended to fund pilot research that will generate preliminary data to leverage extramural research grant opportunities and contribute to a sustainable program of research or scholarship. Basic and applied research in the social, life, physical and engineering sciences are eligible for funding through this program. Please note changes in eligibility. Tenure-track faculty at all ranks are eligible to apply, unless they have recently received institutional research support. See the guidelines at https://research.uga.edu/docs/policies/iga/FSG-Guidelines.pdf. Answers to frequently asked questions, award conditions and other information are on the FSG FAQs page.
The deadline for proposal submission is March 1, 2020.
Successful grants will start July 1, 2020 (FY2021).
