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.
