Mini-Grant Program


The Mini-Grant Program supports research and creative activity with a modest subsidy at critical times. It defrays the cost of travel, supplies, and other materials necessary to conduct the project. Funds may also be used for page charges, color illustrations, and other costs associated with publishing.

Reimbursement Requests

All reimbursements are processed through the Center for Scholarly and Creative Excellence (CSCE).

Purchase of services using personal credit cards will not be reimbursed. Submit your Travel & Expense vouchers (for supplies/materials), receipts, invoices, PO's etc. to the CSCE, 049 JHZ

Reimbursements will not be processed without the accompanying report.
