OVPR Seed and Mini-Seed Grants

The seed grant and mini-seed grant programs are administered by the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR), and are designed to support early stage clinical, translational, and basic science research from TTUHSC El Paso faculty. The overall goal is to provide pilot funding that will result in preliminary data or proof-of-principle concepts to be used for obtaining external grant support.

The mini-seed grant program supports six-month research projects with a budget of $10,000 or less.

The seed grant program supports longer research projects, up to one year, with a maximum grant amount of $40,000.
