UGA Presidential Interdisciplinary Seed Grant Program

In his 2019 State of the University Address, President Morehead announced a new internal seed grant program for interdisciplinary proposals addressing any of the following grand challenges:

  • Healthier People
  • A More Secure Future
  • Stronger Communities

Up to $1 million will be available to support interdisciplinary teams of UGA faculty, possibly working with external collaborators from other universities, government agencies, or the private sector, who submit compelling proposals to address key aspects of these broad themes. Proposals must describe work that will position teams to be competitive for externally funded multi-investigator and/or multi-institution awards. Proposals may include academic and public service faculty, and both research/outreach components when appropriate.

Notice of Intent Due: March 15, 2019
