Scripps Seed Funding Policy
Primary purpose of the Seed Funding Policy is to provide resources (normally under $25K per project) to help an investigator develop and strengthen proof of concept for a new research idea with significant scientific merit. The focus is on new projects or new collaborative partnerships. The call for proposals is announced prior to the annual deadline to remind you of this opportunity.

Scripps Small Grant Program
Primary purpose of the Small Grant Program is to provide funding for research-related expenses that are outside the scope of a single grant, yet critical for ongoing research activities. There is no specific limit to the amount that can be requested, but it is meant to cover items under $2K. There is no call or announcement and will continue on a rolling basis. New requests can be submitted throughout the year. (to access, once at Employee Resources, click on Scripps Policies & login – you’ll be able to download the Small Grant Program and other policies)
