Seed Grants provide modest research funding for a limited time (usually two years) to enable faculty investigators to explore the feasibility of a concept related to the mission of the Center and generate sufficient data to pursue it through other funding mechanisms. Learn more about our Seed Grants program on our website or search for “Center for Health Administration Studies” at fundingopportunities.uchicago.edu. Applications will be accepted until Friday, April 30th, 2021.
