Space@Hopkins call for 2019 seed grant proposals

The 2019 Space@Hopkins seed funding program, with grants of up to $25,000 for one year, are available for space-related projects.

Topics of the proposed projects may include, but are not limited to, robotics, astronaut health, planetary sciences, solar physics, Earth science, spacecraft engineering, sensors, and astrophysics. Civilian space-related proposals are welcome from all Johns Hopkins divisions.

The proposed work must be relevant to Space@Hopkins and JHU institutional research priorities, provide undergraduate research opportunities, and have good prospects for leading to successful external research support. Preference will also be given to interdisciplinary work.

The Space@Hopkins team is willing to help principal investigators find a compatible research collaborator from another department or division within the university and/or to help identify interested undergraduate students. For any technical questions, contact the Space@Hopkins team at

Proposals are due by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, May 8, 2019​, ​and should be submitted electronically through the Space@Hopkins website. This seed grant cycle will begin in September and conclude in September 2020.
