The Penn State Institute for Computational and Data Sciences  has launched its 2024-2025 seed grant program. ICDS seed grants foster innovative data science and HPC-enabled research. As seed grants, awards encourage research groups to develop competitive proposals for substantial external funding.

This year’s competition is focused on five thematic priorities that will receive preferential consideration:

  • Quantum computing
  • AI or computational modeling
  • Virtual and augmented reality
  • Industrial applications of AI
  • Sustainable computing

Other topics in the computational and data sciences, artificial intelligence, and machine learning will also be considered.

Single investigator grants for quantum research will be funded at $25,000. All other grants are expected to be multi-investigator across multiple colleges, with a budget of up to $50,000.

Submission deadline: March 29
