MIT-Chile - Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile Seed Fund
The MIT-Chile - Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile Seed Fund supports budding research collaborations between faculty and research scientists at MIT and their counterparts at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.
Through an annual call for proposals, the fund primarily supports travel costs for exchange between a team at MIT and colleagues in Chile. The Chilean colleague(s) must be identified in the proposal. The maximum award is $30,000.
Priority will be given to projects that:
propose a balanced exchange between the MIT and Chilean participants
demonstrate complementarity between the MIT and Chilean teams
Sixty percent of available funds will be earmarked for projects with an engineering component.
The MIT-Chile Seed Funds are a part of MISTI Global Seed Funds. All general MISTI Global Seed Funds criteria, application and evaluation procedures apply.
