UMB-UMCP Seed Grant Program

The goal of the MPowering the State Seed Grant initiative is to stimulate the submission of innovative basic and translational science research proposals to federal, public, or private funding agencies through collaboration between the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) and the University of Maryland, College Park (UMCP).

The partnership seeks to encourage groups of faculty members from both institutions to collaborate on new avenues of research that would not otherwise be explored by any single group, or to boost an existing collaboration toward a major proposal submission. All areas of research at UMB and UMCP will be considered for funding. Projects should further the strategic collaborative interests between the two institutions and provide a clear path toward subsequent major external funding.
