Call for Applications: Columbia Population Research Center Seed Grant Program

April 30, 2018


All full-time faculty and research scholars or scientists at Columbia University are eligible to apply.


Up to $15,000 will be awarded.


There is a rolling deadline.


The Columbia Population Research Center (CPRC) is issuing a request for seed grant proposals, made possible by funds from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development (NICHD), the Columbia University Office of the Provost, and the Institute for Social and Economic Research and Policy (ISERP).

The goal of the CPRC seed grant program is to help faculty lay the groundwork for intellectually innovative research projects in population, health, and society that can subsequently attract external funding. Substantively, the CPRC is interested in proposals that address one or more of our research priorities.

Applications should:

  1. Focus on the CPRC’s four primary research areas;
  2. Link cutting-edge research in neuroscience with the social, behavioral, or health sciences;
  3. Propose globally focused research;
  4. Develop research methodology; and/or propose policy-related research oriented toward pressing social issues in the domestic or international arena.
