All Michigan faculty and graduate students are eligible to apply for mini grants. Applications may be made at any time and must include a proposal, a budget, and a list of other funding sources, actual and/or solicited. A condition of funding is that the event have a component open to the university public (no grants will be awarded to entirely closed workshops, courses, etc.). Awardees must acknowledge the institute’s support in their publicity and submit a report to the institute at the end of the project. Funds will be disbursed upon receipt of the report; if this presents a hardship, exceptions to this policy may be granted on a case-by-case basis. Apply through eGiF (Electronic Gateway to Internal Funding).
