Seed Money Grants 2018 The goal of the Seed Money Grants is to strengthen or initiate scientific exchange between researchers from Swiss and Latin American institutions in all disciplines by enabling them to jointly undertake preliminary research and organize meetings, conferences, or workshops. Seed Money Grants are particularly useful to develop joint project proposals to be submitted to large funding agencies in Latin America, Switzerland, and Europe or to combine already existing and independently funded projects in Switzerland and the partner countries in order to create long lasting cooperation. For the period 2017-2020, the Leading House will consolidate partnerships with priority countries (Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, and Peru) according to past activities of the program and also support new cooperation endeavors with other potential partners in the region. Therefore, the Leading House opens the call, inviting scholars from Switzerland to propose mono- or interdisciplinary research projects in any Latin American country, involving bilateral or multilateral partnerships. Grants between CHF 10,000 and CHF 25,000 will be awarded. Application Applications shall be submitted in electronic format to the Leading House for the Latin American Region of the University of St.Gallen: firstname.lastname@example.org Please make sure to read all information included in the Call and in the Application Form. Deadline June 16, 2018 Important Notice Seed Money Grants are meant to pay project related costs, travels, organization of workshops, conferences, consumables, accommodations, fieldwork, but are not designed to pay salaries, tuition fees, outsourced services and hardware.
