The College of Arts & Sciences Faculty Mini-grant Program


College of Arts and Sciences Mini-grant awards support scholarship and creative activities by tenured and tenure-track faculty across the college, except those holding visiting appointments. An award will typically be for $500 to $1,000.

A primary goal of the College of Arts & Sciences mini-grant program is to provide seed funding for new projects with the potential to attract future external funding support. Many mini-grants lead to subsequent external grant proposal submission. Any project concerned with scholarship or creative activities that can lead to peer reviewed outcomes (including the scholarship of discovery, application, integration, and/or pedagogy) is potentially fundable.
