Minigrants – These awards (up to $5000) allow faculty to test promising ideas.  Funds can be used for undergraduate and/or graduate assistants, clerical assistance, travel, and supplies necessary for the activity.  Minigrants may not be used for faculty release time from teaching assignments. Minigrants must be expended by the end of the spring 2019 term (for exact date, please check with your Resource Manager).

RSCA Assigned Time Awards
