About the Partnership:
The UMD-TEC Seed Grant program intends to help scholars at both institutions to identify complementary research strengths and generate pilot data for proposal submissions that pursue innovative collaborative work. The last Call for Proposals supported 5 seed grant awards and invites research proposals in all fields of knowledge. Interdisciplinary projects are encouraged. TEC's Strategic Research Areas can be found here. TEC and UMD (VPR) each contributed up to $20,000 USD per funded seed grant (total of $40k/project) for a maximum duration of 12 months. The last application deadline was December 15, 2017.
Proposal guidelines for the UMD-TEC Seed Grants can be found here. All UMD faculty questions related to this opportunity, including future calls for proposals and deadlines, should be directed to Dr. Beth Brittan-Powell: firstname.lastname@example.org
