Spring 2021 GVU IPaT Seed Grants Request for Proposals

Deadline: Oct. 31, 2020
The GVU Center and the Institute for People and Technology (IPaT), with additional support from GTRI, announce the call for proposals for Seed Grants for Spring 2021. Seed Grants will provide seed funding to catalyze and support interdisciplinary research activities involving faculty and students from the many disciplines represented in GVU and IPaT. We seek bold new work that by its preliminary nature would be difficult to fund through ordinary channels. Given the one semester time frame, this seed grant program will encourage collaborative projects, across academic and research faculty, that help build out new research capabilities, kick start new collaborations, and help our community address the challenges raised to the forefront during this unprecedented year.
