The Department published a Notice Inviting Applications for the 2015 SEED competition. Applications are due on April 13, 2015. Please see the Applicant Information page for more information about this year’s competition.
The Department will host an interactive question and answer webinar session on March 10, 2015 at 2 PM Eastern Time to answer questions from potential applicants on the SEED program and the application process. Prior to the Q&A session, the SEED program will post a pre-recorded informational webinar on this website to go over the content of the NIA.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to watch the pre-recorded content webinar prior to joining the Q&A session as it will likely answer many of the basic questions about the competition. Check this webpage for updates on the Q&A webinar, including the link to the pre-recorded webinar.
Potential applicants are encouraged to submit an intent to apply email. The e-mail notification should be sent to the SEED program at SEED@ed.gov no later than March 12, 2015. Applicants that fail to provide this e-mail notification may still apply for funding.
