2018 OSU Materials Research Seed Grant Program Request for Proposals

We are pleased to announce the 2018 OSU Materials Research Seed Grant Program Request for Proposals (RFP). This enhanced seed program leverages resources and best practices of the Center for Emergent Materials (CEM), the Center for Exploration of Novel Complex Materials (ENCOMM), and the Institute for Materials Research (IMR).

The three Funding Tiers of the 2018 OSU Materials Research Seed Grant Program are:

  1. Proto-IRG Grants provide funds up to $100,000/year per award in direct costs, with the goal of forming new Interdisciplinary Research Groups (IRGs) that could be incorporated into the CEM renewal proposal in 2018-2019.
  2. Multidisciplinary Team Building Grants provide funds up to $60,000/year per award in direct costs, with the goal of forming multidisciplinary materials research teams that can compete for federal block-funding opportunities.
  3. Exploratory Materials Research Grants provide funds up to $40,000/year per award in direct costs, with the goal of enabling nascent and innovative materials research to emerge to the point of being competitive for external funding.
