Apply for a mini grant/cosponsorship.

The Institute for the Humanities co-sponsors a wide variety of faculty and graduate student projects in the College of Literature, Science, and the Art and the broader university—all of which serve to strengthen intellectual and cultural life on campus and beyond. The events we fund through minigrants must have a component open to the public, thus supporting our mission to bring the voices of the humanities to public life. Only University of Michigan faculty and graduate students can apply for minigrants (click on link above to apply).
