Grants Program

Students prepare small rocket for launch

State and federal grant programs are well-suited to fund companies' ideas and endeavors through programs such as the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs.  Many BEAM faculty participate in such programs, writing and reviewing grants for the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Institutes and Health (NIH), the Department of Defense (DoD), and other agencies.  Industry partner program members can partner with BEAM, and across Virginia Tech, to find faculty collaborators with subject matter expertise, testing and research capabilities, and other resources.
