Seed for Science: Applications Open Now

Funding Opportunity for Student Researchers Interested in the Interaction Between the Neuromuscular and Cardiovascular Systems of the Human Body

The De Luca Foundation is running Seed for Science, an annual initiative scheduled for the next ten years. It is designed to support the brightest student researchers in health and movement science-related fields, and to provide them with funding and research equipment as part of semester-long fellowships.

This year's application period ends on December 8, 2023, so be sure to get those applications in before the deadline!

Our Goal: to Cultivate the Next Generation of Scientists

This year, the De Luca Foundation will be selecting four winners who will advance science by conducting novel pilot studies on the interaction between the cardiovascular and neuromuscular systems of the human body.

Selected candidates will work with a principal investigator at their selected institution to complete a semester-long fellowship. As part of their fellowship, each winner will receive a $10,000 stipend, Trigno EMG equipment provided by Delsys, and biofeedback sensors from Moxy, VO2 Master, and Polar.

Winners will also earn the opportunity to visit Delsys Headquarters, located in Boston, USA, to present their work, meet the team, and learn from leading researchers.
