CCBS Seed Grant


Each year, the Center for Cognitive and Brain Sciences offers an exciting funding opportunity for Center members to earn a seed grant.

The purpose of the seed grant award is to allow CCBS members the opportunity to develop tangible resources that can be shared by the research community at OSU and at large. This may include software packages, data bases, data archives, virtual machines, or other resources that further the Center’s mission of advancing the study of mind, brain, and formal models of cognitive processes across disciplines.

Successful proposals outline activities that will significantly contribute to the acquisition of knowledge that improves the human condition while increasing the visibility of the Center nationally and internationally. The Center may select up to two awards per year, each with a maximum of two years and a maximum budget of $75,000 per year.

The annual call for proposals will be announced in July. Proposals will be posted and Center members will be invited to view and comment upon submissions anonymously. The proposal with the most merit will be invited to provide a full proposal. Final funding decisions will be made by the end of the year.
