Mini-grant

The Institute for the Humanities co-sponsors a wide variety of faculty and graduate student projects in the College of Literature, Science, and the Art and the broader university—all of which serve to strengthen intellectual and cultural life on campus and beyond. The events we fund through minigrants must have a component open to the public, thus supporting our mission to bring the voices of the humanities to public life. Only University of Michigan faculty and graduate students can apply for minigrants.

  • All Michigan faculty and graduate students are eligible to apply for mini grants.
  • Applications may be made at any time and must include a proposal, a budget, and a list of other funding sources, actual and/or solicited.
  • A condition of funding is that the event have a component open to the university public (no grants will be awarded to entirely closed workshops, courses, etc.).
  • Awardees must acknowledge the institute’s support in their publicity and submit a report to the institute at the end of the project.
  • Funds will be disbursed upon receipt of the report; if this presents a hardship, exceptions to this policy may be granted on a case-by-case basis.

Applying for a Mini-Grant

  • Graduate students and LSA tenured and tenure-track faculty should apply through eGiF (Electronic Gateway to Internal Funding).
  • Other tenured and tenure-track faculty should apply by email to institute director Peggy McCracken at peggymcc@umich.edu.
