The Montana Water Centerinvites pre-proposalsforthe annual Montana Water Center Faculty
Seed Grants. The goal of this program is to help address water resource problems of significance to
Montana and the region by stimulating cutting edge, water-related research among faculty and
students across the Montana University System.

Disciplinary and/or single PI proposals should not exceed $15,000; interdisciplinary teams may
apply for up to $30,000, but these requests will need to justify the cross-disciplinary nature of the
research team and questions. Priority will be given to clearly articulated proposals that (a) have
high intellectual merit and the potential to advance knowledge, (b) clearly identify the applied
relevance of the research to MT water stakeholders; (c) foster student training and involvement; and
(d) demonstrate a compelling and realistic plan for how the seed funding will be leveraged to seek
additional externalfunding. Competitive proposals from early-careerfacultymemberswill also be
given priority.
