2017 OSU Materials Research Seed Grant Program Request for Proposals

We are pleased to announce the 2017 OSU Materials Research Seed Grant Program Request for Proposals are now available.  This internal seed grant program is open to the Ohio State University materials community and offers two funding tiers to cover the breadth of materials research at OSU.

The three funding tiers of the 2017 OSU Materials Research Seed Grant Program are:

  1. Proto-IRG Grants provide funds up to $100,000/year per award in direct costs, require one Principal Investigator (PI) and two Co-Principal Investigators (Co-PIs), and may have unfunded collaborators with the goal of forming new Interdisciplinary Research Groups (IRGs) that could be incorporated into the CEM renewal proposal in 2018.
  2. Multidisciplinary Team Building Grants, provide funds up to $60,000/year per award in direct costs, and require one PI and one Co-PI, and may have unfunded collaborators, with the goal of forming multidisciplinary materials research teams that can compete effectively for federal block-funding opportunities, such as the NSF MRSEC program.
  3. Exploratory Materials Research Grants, provide funds up to $40,000/year per award in direct costs, and require one PI, and may have Co-PIs and/or unfunded collaborators, with the goal of enabling nascent and innovative materials research to emerge to the point of being competitive for external funding.
