The 2023-2024 Seed Fund Cycle is now closed.

Winners for the 2023-2024 application cycle will be announced early May. 


Applicants must submit their proposals using the online application portal (new application coming in early fall 2023). Grantees are required to complete a final report at the end of the grant period. At the completion of the grant cycle, all unused funds will be returned to Global Seed Funds.

  • To create a new proposal, click on "Sign up" under "Need an Account?" on the right side of the homepage. 
  • Proposals can be saved as you are working on it before submission. 
  • The proposal can be started by either the MIT applicant or the international collaborator.
  • Once you have started your proposal, you can add the other team members to your project proposal by using the "Add Member" feature on the main page.
