Eligible organization: As below
● You can apply for a Seed Award if you’re a researcher who wants to develop a novel idea that will go on to form part of a larger grant application to Wellcome or elsewhere.
● To be eligible, you must have a PhD or an equivalent higher degree.
● You must be based at an eligible host organisation in the UK, Republic of Ireland or a low- or middle-income country (apart from India). However, you can’t usually apply if you have access to support from a core-funded research organization (see ‘Who can’t apply’ below for more details).
For the duration of the award, you must have:
● An academic or research post and receive your salary from your host organisation rather than from another research grant
● A personal award or fellowship that provides your salary with no or only minimal research expenses.
● You must not currently receive funding at a similar level to a Seed Award in Science, or have held equivalent funding in the 12 months before the closing date for this award.
Read Scenarios of eligible and ineligible Seed Awards in Science applicants.
● You must have enough time to commit to the award.
They particularly encourage researchers:
● At the start of their independent careers
● Who want to develop ideas that are outside their discipline or area of expertise
● Who propose interdisciplinary research across our funding in science and population health research, humanities and social science, and product development and applied research funding.
● You can have collaborators, but you can’t submit a joint application with another person.
Seed Awards in Science are not for:
● Discrete projects with no follow-on plans
● Bridge funding or short-term fellowships.
You can’t apply if:
● You’ve held a Seed Award in Science in the past
● You’ve held a Sir Henry Wellcome Fellowship in the last 12 months
● Your salary comes from Wellcome funding (eg Institutional Strategic Support Fund)
● You’re employed as a postdoctoral researcher on another grant.
You can’t usually apply if you have access to support from a core-funded research organisation listed in the website.
