The MIT-France Seed Fund, a $2 million endowment funded equally by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), supports budding research collaborations between faculty and research scientists at MIT and their counterparts in France.
Through an annual call for proposals, the fund primarily supports travel costs for exchange between a team at MIT and colleagues in universities and public research in France. The French colleague(s) must be identified in the proposal. The maximum award is $30,000.
The deadline for the 2012-2013 grant cycle is September 17, 2012.
