Mini-Grant Awards

Due to budgetary constraints the typical internal funding mechanisms are suspended at this time, although requests for emergency research needs will be considered. For information about emergency research funding or university-level funding opportunities for faculty, please contact Betty Lorch, Senior Associate Dean for Research, at


Limited funds are available to full-time A&S College faculty, including lecturers, for "mini-grant" proposals. These mini-grant awards have an upper limit of $2,000 for equipment and $1,200 for other research-related expenses. Mini-grants in the latter category are often used to support small research projects; foreign travel support for field, museum, library or laboratory work; travel to accept an award or when serving as the organizer of a conference; trips to visit funding agents or attend funding workshops.

Preference will be given to requests from untenured, tenure-track faculty in any discipline and to requests from tenured faculty in disciplines where extramural funding is not generally available.

Faculty are eligible to apply for one mini-grant each fiscal year. Support will be limited to one foreign trip per fiscal year.

Requests for mini-grant funds may be submitted at any time and will be reviewed promptly.
