Fay/Frank Seed Grant Program

The Brain Research Foundation has invited US institutions to nominate faculty to submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) for the Fay/Frank Seed Grant Program. Invited institutions outside of Illinois may submit 1 LOI per institution. The Brain Research Foundation’s Annual Seed Grant Program was initiated in 1981. The purpose of our Program is to provide start-up monies for new research projects in the field of Neuroscience that will likely lead to extramural funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) or other outside funding sources.
