2019 OSU Materials Research Seed Grant Program Request for Proposals
We are pleased to announce the 2019 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 2019 OSU Materials Research Seed Grant Program are:
1. Renewal IRG Grants to select the interdisciplinary research groups (IRGs) for the Center for Emergent Material’s proposal to renew its funding as a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) has a separate request for proposals this year—please see the CEM website.
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.
