Clemson University faculty are encouraged to apply for internal funding under the Clemson SEED program to support the initiation of research or the completion of a scholarly project or product.
Clemson SEED (Support for Early Exploration and Development) provides two tiers of funding. Priority consideration is given to faculty who may not have large start-up packages or significant financial research support and resources.
In Tier-1 awards, projects or products for completion can include finalizing peer-reviewed publications, scholarly books, chapters in books, or showings as in the case of the visual and performing arts.
Tier-2 initiation awards must include a proposal to an external funding agency as one of its deliverables. Initiation activities can include establishing baseline data, completing a phase of a research project that will lead to greater funding opportunities or developing research partnerships with collaborators at other institutions.
The deadline to apply for a Clemson SEED grant is March 7. Full details are available online.
Last year’s SEED grants supported work by faculty in every college. A full list of last year’s recipients is available online here.
Clemson SEED is one of four R-Initiative funding opportunities available this semester. The R-Initiative funds are part of the ClemsonForward strategic plan, representing the “R” of the REAL priorities – Research, Engagement, the Academic core and the Living environment.
For details, guidelines and instructions for applying, visit the R-Initiatives webpage. Questions should be directed to Diana Thrasher in the Division of Research at firstname.lastname@example.org or 864-656-6444.
