The Digital Seed Grant had an impressive amount of applications for its second year. The proposals received were of high quality and diverse in scope. This included submissions from chemistry, aerospace, biology, FIRE, criminal justice, psychology, health and human performance, global studies, English, history, recording industry, and media arts. The Digital Seed Grant Committee commends all the applicants on their proposed research or teaching projects.
