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.  FY21 seed grant funding totals have not been determined.

*New*: addition of the Dean's Award for Clinical-Basic Science Collaboration

Researchers with projects addressing livestock health as defined under the USDA Animal Health Disease and Research program are encouraged to submit under that call, which will be in early fall 2020.
