Seed Grant Funding

The Innovations in Positive Health pilot grant fund supports pioneering research at early stages of development that focuses on positive health science or communication and translation sciences related to positive health science. Awards are granted for amounts between $5,000 and $20,000 to cover research-related expenses. Applications for 2020 grant funding are due on February 14, 2020 and can be found here.

This is a competitive grant program. It is open to all Harvard University faculty, research scientists, and post-doctoral research scholars. Students are not eligible to apply for these funds. Projects are prioritized for funding when they: 1) integrate the theories, questions, and
methods of two or more disciplines; 2) involve high payoff in terms of opening new areas of inquiry or provide crucial preliminary data for preparing larger grant proposals; or 3) explicitly connect faculty and scholars across departments and schools.

Applications for 2020 are closed. Congratulations to this year’s recipients!
