Tyson Faculty Seed Grant

The Tyson Faculty Seed Grant is designed to fund projects that help kindle interdisciplinary field research at Washington University’s Tyson Research Center. It is an opportunity for faculty looking to collaborate on research and help improve their competitiveness for external grants by facilitating the generation of preliminary data and testing proof of concept.

Key Criteria:

  • Faculty must be located in different departments
  • Proposals should demonstrate potential for collaboration and for obtaining external support to continue research
  • Proposals should pose research questions that are at the forefront of cross-disciplinary research and that require the involvement of all disciplines included on the proposal (i.e. questions cannot stand alone within individual disciplines).

Applications are accepted through March 1. For more information, contact Kim Medley at kim.medley@wustl.edu.
