Diversification Mini-Grants Award Program
Funded by the VP for Research office, Center for Faculty Excellence, and ADVANCE: Project TRACS, proposal solicitations will be announced each year to all faculty with priority given to outstanding applications by women in STEM/SBS. We are anticipating 4 awards per year. The mini-grants can be used to diversify one’ s research or teaching and could include requesting funds to collect pilot data, collaborate on an interdisciplinary project, develop multi-department research proposals or courses, pair new faculty with senior faculty across departments, request funds for retreats, workshops, or speakers, travel to other campuses and conferences, add a diversity component to existing research and courses, etc.
Mini-Grant Winners for 2013!
These outstanding proposals rose to the top and are this years 2013 awardees supported by the ADVANCE Project TRACS initiative to Enhance Research Capacity and Opportunity. These awards are made possible in large part by the Vice President for Research Office, which is highly committed to broadening the participation of women in STEM/SBS. These awardees serve as role model to many women students and faculty at MSU and are to be commended for your scholarly achievements.
