Seed Grant Awards

The NYU Marron Director’s Office has established an initiative to offer two-year grants to principal investigators at NYU as seed funding for innovative scholarship and applied-research projects that address pressing problems faced by cities and urban residents. The purpose of the grant program is to stimulate proposals for creative solutions to socio-economic, political, or physical challenges that accompany urban development. We have been interested in sponsoring interdisciplinary work and research with practical applications to management of urban spaces. We are not accepting proposals at this time.
