As the President's Innovation Seed Fund was initially planned as a two-year pilot project, the Committee has previously held six rounds for considering initiatives for approval:
- Round 1 – Fall 2009
- Round 2 – Winter 2010
- Round 3 – Summer 2010
- Round 4 – Fall 2010
- Round 5 - Winter/Spring 2011
- Round 6 - Fall 2011
Thanks to the successful repayment of several previous projects, and an additional endowment from the President's Office, the Fund is seeking additional proposals to be submitted by May 31st, 2012.
Applicants whose concept proposals are approved, will be contacted and the deadline for the submission of the business plan will be communicated on a case by case basis, depending on the complexity of the proposed initiative.
