Great Cities Faculty Seed Fund Competition

The Great Cities Faculty Seed Fund offers awards to promising engaged research projects at UIC. The awards are often given to small or pilot projects that have the potential to generate additional research projects in the near future. Ranging between $2,500 and $5,000, these awards can be used for direct costs associated with the project, except for faculty salaries and otherwise prohibited uses of state funds.
