Graduate Institute’s Seed Money Grants

The Graduate Institute’s seed money scheme is designed to support the initiation of research activities which can serve as pilot projects for subsequent grant applications from outside agencies (SNSF, ERC, SNIS. etc.); the scheme is intended to serve as a way of jump-starting research projects by Institute faculty who, at the current stage of their careers, have not yet developed an extensive network of professional contacts or carried out many research projects. The one-time, non-renewable seed grants are designed to support activities such as performing preliminary work and exploring potential collaborations. Awardees are expected to submit at least one proposal for external funding within one year of the start of the award.
