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 2024 call is now open! We expect to award approximately 25 grants, up to $75,000 each with the possibility of an additional $10,000 for public policy analysis. Visit the Call for Proposals to learn more and apply. Proposals are due by August 12, 2024. If you have any questions, please contact us at
