Return on Investment: Wilmot’s Seed Grants Program Supports Promising Research Projects

Return on Investment: Wilmot’s Seed Grants Program Supports Promising Research Projects

Seed grants, also known as pilot grants, are akin to start-up funding in the business world. These grants are competitive, and applications are carefully reviewed by a select committee of Wilmot faculty. Seed grants allow researchers to build a case for further investment in their work by such major funders as the National Cancer Institute and National Institutes of Health.
