Congratulations to the following faculty who have recieved funding! The UW Bothell SRCP Seed Grant Program is intended to competitively support UW Bothell faculty in all disciplines who are starting new projects or relaunching current projects in new directions that have the potential for internal UW and/or external funding. We hope to continue building the research capacity and extramural support for faculty across all Schools.

A total of $284,000 was awarded to faculty and some funding was given specifically to support undergraduate researchers assisting with their mentor's research.
