EHHD Student Internal Grant Opportunities
- Student Research Conference Support Scholarship for 2022-2023 For students who are presenting at state or national conferences
EHHD Internal Grant Opportunities 2023-2024
- In FY24 we anticipate for Tenure Track faculty a single new very small seed-grant opportunity aimed at preparing full-scale external grant proposals. Stay tuned.
EHHD Policies and Forms
Ideally submit the LOI form 4 weeks before your proposal is due and at least a week
before you submit the ePCF (Office of Sponsored Programs' electronic Proposal Clearance
Form) so any questions or concerns can be resolved early.
This DocuSign form is to be filled on-line.
Note: The LOI is required for all external sources of funds payable to the institution on your behalf (e.g. including subawards, but not private consulting arrangements that bypass MSU). LOIs also should be submitted for internal MSU grants except those invited by the EHHD Dean, or those submitted through the Department Head and Dean (such as Faculty Excellence Grants).

Funds available for mentors to review your grant applications:
We are offering faculty a new strategy to be successful with grant writing. EHHD will provide $100 for EHHD grant writers to offer to a successful grant writing expert in your field to review a draft of your grant proposal. Recently we heard of another university that used this strategy with great success. With a $100 investment, faculty were getting an amazing quantity of helpful feedback that increased their success rates. Here are the specifics: one $100 stipend per grant that you submit; provide the name and credentials to Mary Miles. You want to shoot for the biggest star in your area, and hopefully, when they read your stellar proposal they will also want to be a consultant for your project! Eligible reviewers must not be MSU employees. When the review has been completed, please submit a brief invoice with information regarding the invoice amount ($100) name, email, and mailing address of the reviewer along with a current W-9 tax form so that payment may be processed (all sent to Mary Miles, [email protected]).
Research Computing Group (RCG): aims to provide affordable IT infrastructure to researchers. This is a collaborative effort between the ITC and the Office of the Vice President for Research to provide additional research-specific resources that lie outside the scope of ITC services.
See MSU Information Sheet for basic information required for proposal forms and budgets.
