Shaping tomorrow, today, requires path-breaking, creative solutions. That challenge has never been more critical than it is today, as an alarming “syndemic” of intersecting crises—the coronavirus pandemic, racial injustice and accompanying civil unrest, and cascading environmental hazards—destabilize social systems and threaten human survival across the planet. To seize the moment, we're offering ASU faculty the opportunity to apply for seed grants of up to $10,000 to support collaborative, transdisciplinary research projects and activities that address the intersecting social, environmental, and health crises of the syndemic. Seize the Moment seed grants are open to ASU term, tenured, or tenure-track faculty of any rank, campus, or discipline. All you need for the first round of applications is a simple pitch. 

The fall deadline is October 15. View the full guidelines and apply today at
