Stony Brook University President Samuel L. Stanley Jr., MD, with support from the Office of the Provost, sponsors the Seed Grant program for joint initiatives between scientists from the University and BNL. Current major strategic initiatives are in energy sciences, nuclear and high-energy physics, computational science, X-ray science, biological and life sciences, and climate science. Winning proposals are typically funded between $30K and $45K. These collaborations are a key element for developing synergistic activities that can grow joint research programs aligned with the strategic plans of both institutions.

The Office of Brookhaven National Laboratory Affairs at Stony Brook administers the program annually. For more information about the program, please send an email to:
