The Research Development Office'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.
OVPR Interdisciplinary Scholars
Applications are sought for collaborative OVPR Interdisciplinary Scholars proposals with awards up to $220k for 18 months. Successful proposals must focus on areas of interdisciplinary strength at the University of Iowa that have significant societal impact. As part of the application, proposers will need to identify and justify why their proposal area is considered an institutional strength. The goal is to enable teams of researchers to build on existing strengths to achieve significant growth in the area of focus.
