Seed Grants

The TomKat Center has supported a broad portfolio of early-stage research by Stanford faculty in the area of sustainable energy. From 2010 to 2021, we awarded over $6 million to 37 such research projects involving 56 faculty members from 20 departments and programs. Most of these projects have been awarded two years of research funding but have since gone on to receive millions in follow-on funding and to build new research initiatives.
