NSF EPSCoR RII Track 1 Seed Grants
Project Year 2 • Request for Research Proposals

SD EPSCoR hereby solicits Seed Grant proposals from researchers at the NSF EPSCoR Track 1 partner institutions. A total of $200,000 is available in project year 2, and it is anticipated that $200,000 will be available each project year. Research proposals supporting transformative solutions or innovative uses of biofilms are solicited. Proposals for high-risk, high reward biofilm research at the intersection of biofilms, 2D materials and big data are solicited. Seed Grant funds are intended to 1) support high risk research that will result in submission of research proposals to federal agencies or sponsored research supported by industrial partners, and 2) allow researchers not currently supported by Track 1 funding to become involved in the Track 1 research. It is anticipated that 4 awards for up to 12-month, October 1, 2020 – September 2021, will be made.
