CVM Seed Grant Proposal

CVM Seed Grants

Through one annual call for proposals, small-sized grants are awarded through two different funding portals  

The goal of the CVM Seed Grant program is to increase potential for research funding from extramural sources. There are no restrictions on research areas or topics; however, successful proposals contain innovative ideas, foster multi-disciplinary team research, have significant merit, and are competitive for funding at the national level.  Funds may also be used for travel to establish collaborations or to learn new techniques.  For 2018-2019, there were 7 USDA Capacity projects awarded and 7 other projects awarded.  FY20 seed grant funding totals have not been determined.
