What are appropriate uses of seed funding?

Seed funding must be fully disbursed to referred applicants and/or researchers to support the formation of partnerships between matched pairs, and may be allocated for purposes such as travel expenses, stipends, supplies, etc. In keeping with RWJF policy, funds may not be used to subsidize individuals for the costs of their health care, to support clinical trials of unapproved drugs or devices, to construct or renovate facilities, for lobbying, for political activities, or as a substitute for funds currently being used to support similar activities.
