The Science of Wellness Initiative (SWI) – Catalyst Seed Grant (CSG) program, which is an initiative of the Provost's Office, provides funds to explore creative, diverse research opportunities in the science of wellness that have strong potential to develop into larger, externally funded research programs.
Grants of up to $80,000 of total funding, as appropriate to the proposed research, are available through this program. The CSG is part of the broader goal of the University to position itself as a global leader in the advancement of the new era of human-centered, data-driven healthcare, while prioritizing our commitment to the ethical and equitable treatment of all people by identifying novel implementation strategies. Success will require the integration of efforts from across the broader Notre Dame intellectual community.
An on-campus meeting for prospective proposers to the CSG program will take place on August 24, 2018 from 3:00-5:00 p.m. in the Jordan Hall of Science, Room 310. At that event, representatives from the CSG task force will be available to answer questions from those interested in submitting to the CSG program. Another function of the meeting will be to facilitate the formation of teams that may be able to join forces on the development of a proposal.
