Space@Hopkins seed grant program

Faculty and research scientists from across the university who are engaged in space studies are invited to apply for seed funding from Space@Hopkins, an interdivisional initiative that unifies civilian space-related activities across the institution.

The 2017 seed funding program, with grants of up to $25,000 for one year, are available for projects related to such fields as robotics, astronaut health, planetary sciences, solar physics, Earth science, spacecraft engineering, sensors, and astrophysics.

The proposed work must be relevant to Space@Hopkins and JHU institutional research priorities, be interdisciplinary, provide undergraduate research opportunities, and have good prospects for leading to successful external research support. The Space@Hopkins team is happy to help researchers fulfill the interdisciplinary requirement by finding a compatible researcher from another department or division within the university. For any technical questions, contact us at

Proposals are due by 5 p.m. on Friday, May 19. Decisions will be announced by the review committee by the end of June.

Details about the Space@Hopkins seed funding program are available on the program's website.
