The intent of this funding is to provide faculty and research staff funds for idea development and data collection that will quickly enable large externally sponsored funding requests.
Proposals will be accepted from Michigan Tech tenured, tenure-track, and research faculty, and research scientists and engineers. Any individual researcher is eligible to receive up to one award per calendar year as a principal investigator (PI).
Awards will be announced within one month of the funding cycle deadline. Projects should have a duration of one semester with request amounts not to exceed $10,000.
Awardees must be affiliated members of the GLRC and/or ICC and are expected to assign a Center/Institute of the GLRC or ICC to any subsequent proposals and awards generated using the data developed/enabled with the rapid seedling funding.
The application form, additional information, and instructions can be found in the Member Resources section of the GLRC Institute webpage and on the ICC website. Please send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
