GHI Seed Grants support UW-Madison efforts to launch new global research projects and make them competitive for sustained external funding. Seed grants allow researchers to reach across disciplines for collaborators and make many projects possible.
GHI’s call for grant applications is usually issued in October/November with a submission deadline in February. Grants are awarded for the following fiscal year. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Seed Grants will not be offered in 2018.
