Environmental Center Seed Grants


The Environmental Center seeks to stimulate the creation of multidisciplinary research projects related to the environment. Seed Grants offered to faculty are intended to support environmentally related research that subsequently results in the preparation and submission of a proposal to an external funding agency that is submitted through the Center. The Environmental Center especially seeks to inspire effective collaboration between faculty members and students in diverse disciplines. The Environmental Center Seed Grants are competitively awarded to the most meritorious proposals. 


The Environmental Center will award two Seed Grants for up to $6,000, an increase from previous years, to faculty or teams of UNF personnel that include at least one tenure track faculty member.
