The Seed Funding Program is primarily intended to support Rowan faculty who are beginning investigators in their respective area of research or creative activity and to act as a stimulus for attracting additional external support. Any single grant will not exceed $10,000. Seed Funding Program Grants cannot be used for faculty member summer salary or provide funding for course-buyouts.
