Brain Research Foundation: Fay/Frank 2017 Seed Grant

Brain Research Foundation’s Annual Seed Grant Program was initiated in 1981. The purpose of our Program is to provide start-up monies for new research projects in the field of Neuroscience that will likely lead to extramural funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) or other outside funding sources.

This funding opportunity is for projects that may be too innovative and speculative for traditional funding sources but still have a high likelihood of producing important findings in a very short timeframe. It is expected that investigations supported by these grants will yield high impact findings and result in major grant applications and significant publications in high impact journals. 100% of these Seed Grant funds must be utilized for direct costs. To be eligible, PI must be a full-time Assistant or Associate Professor working in the area of studies of brain function. If the required letter of intent receives a favorable review, the PI will be invited to submit a grant application.

Please see the full RFP for complete information.

Estimated Program Funding: $800,000 total
Anticipated Number of Awards: 8-10

Letter of Intent: Yes
