Collaborative Seed Grants

 The goal of the Petit Institute Seed Grant Program is to stimulate new interdisciplinary research collaborations between Petit Institute investigators. It is required to have two co-principal investigators from two different Georgia Tech colleges who have to previously worked together (no funded grants or publications together previously), and both faculty members must have a primary appointment at Georgia Tech. Proposal submissions should represent a new collaborative project between investigators. Learn more and apply.

Core Facility Seed Grants

Petit Institute Seed Grants for Core Facilities was created to give investigators an opportunity to expand their usage of Petit Institute core facility equipment and to make grant proposals more competitive. Only one Petit Institute investigator is required per application. Core facility seed grants are intended to be limited in scope and primarily for the collection of preliminary data that would be included in a grant proposal to be submitted within the next 6 months. Core facilities seed grants are only available to investigators that currently have no other means to pay the core facilities charges associated with the requested use. Consumables are not covered by the seed grants, only hourly core facilities charges. Learn more and apply.
