Seed Research Grants

The seed research grants are designed to support new, ambitious, and speculative ideas with the objective of getting initial results. In keeping with the multidisciplinary mission of HAI, we welcome proposals from the whole array of humanistic, social scientific, natural scientific, biomedical, and engineering approaches, including critical, historical, ethnographic, clinical, experimental, and inventive work. We fund a wide variety of projects, from discrete studies to book-length research to speaker series to system building and evaluation.

The 2023 call is now closed. HAI plans to announce the 2023 winners in late October, and the next call is tentatively planned for Summer 2024. Visit Call for Proposals for criteria and eligibility. If you have any questions, please contact us at
