Opportunities for UC San Diego Faculty


CLOSED: Small Grants for Faculty and Research Scientists (Seed Grants)

The Institute for Practical Ethics announced its third call of small grants for faculty and research scientists at UC San Diego. Read the full grant program outline (PDF) for complete information.

The Institute for Practical Ethics will consider proposals for funding of projects that fit institute goals. Applications will support projects completed in the current academic year (2019 – 2020) or next (2020 – 2021). Applicants must be internal UC San Diego faculty or research scientists, and supported projects are expected to be distinct from other faculty grants.

Proposals will be evaluated according to their quality, relevance and impact. Interdisciplinary projects are preferred, as are projects that involve more than one faculty member and which coalesce around a general theme.

Examples of topical areas supported include — but are not limited to — social or ethical issues arising in big data and engineering, climate change, genetic engineering, clinical trials in medicine, biodiversity, nudging in healthcare and empirical investigations into ethics. Learn more about winning grants from previous years.
