Seeding Excellence Initiatve
The RDO's Seeding Excellence Initiative (SEI) aims to sustain the continued growth of the campus research enterprise by providing competitive seed funding in four strategic areas: 1) community engaged research and scholarship, 2) diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), 3) early career scholars, and 4) interdisciplinary research. SEI is made possible through funding to RDO from the public-private partnership (P3) Year 1 funding cycle.
The RDO sought applications to seed interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research communities that advance research, creative activities, and scholarship. Jumpstarting Tomorrow is a hybrid pilot grant/community-building program that will support innovative and collaborative teams that could become the vanguard for future strategic research investments by the university.
