The S3 Interdisciplinary Seed Grant Program

The S3 Interdisciplinary Grant Program provides seed funds to MSU interdisciplinary collaborations working on external grant proposals. To be eligible, collaborative teams must include at least one MSU STEM faculty or health professional and at least one MSU science studies faculty (a scholar using social science or humanities approach to study science). The call for applications is due every spring semester and is assessed by the advisory board (see below) and Sean Valles, Director of S3 and Associate Professor in Lyman Briggs College and the Department of Philosophy.
