CVM Seed Grants

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.  Projects involving both clinical science and basic science researchers are considered for funding under the Dean's Award for Clinical-Basic Science Collaboration first and then as a standard CVM Seed Grant second. Funds may also be used for travel to establish collaborations or to learn new techniques. (Researchers with projects addressing livestock health as defined under the USDA Animal Health Disease and Research program are encouraged to submit under that call).
