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.
Tenured or tenure-track faculty members on continuing appointment are eligible.
- One grant per faculty member per year.
- Effective January 1, 2020, the maximum requested amount is increased to $500.
- Funds are not to be used to supplement any current funding or conference travel.
- Grants may not be used to purchase general computer equipment that can be funded through other sources on campus (i.e. life-cycle funding, school/department funding).
All reimbursements are processed through your department. Beginning July 1, 2021, your expenses are reimbursed from your department through Concur. Your support staff will submit a request in OnBase to have your grant funds returned to the department. The Center reimburses department funds when all grant criteria are met. Any services performed (editing, page publication, transcription, etc.) MUST be paid directly by by your department via an invoice or purchased using your department p-card. Purchase of services using personal credit cards will not be reimbursed. The Center reimburses department funds when all grant criteria are met.
Mini-Grant recipients are expected to prepare a synopsis of the scholarship at the completion of the project. No further funding will be given to the faculty member until the synopsis is received and accepted by the Center for Scholarly and Creative Excellence.
