Initiated for the first time in 2014, the “Koç University Seed Research Fund (KU-SRF) Program” is designed to support innovative early-stage research projects from all disciplines represented in our university (science, medicine, engineering, administrative sciences, economics, social sciences and humanities, law and nursing). KU-SRF principally aims to support creativity, out-of-the-box thinking and curiosity-driven research; to facilitate scientific development and innovation.

The seed fund program is open to all full-time KU faculty and post-doctoral researchers. After the selection process, each successful application is awarded up to 25.000 TL per year, for a maximum duration of two years.

This program is run by Koç University’s Commission for Scientific Research and the new 2021 call was announced on 22 February 2021. The call closes on 22 April 2021. You can download this year’s application documents and the final report template on this page.

Please send your application documents and any queries to Emrah Göker and Oya Gül from RPDTTD.
