Small Grants for Faculty Research & Creative Projects


Each year, faculty from a wide range of disciplines apply for funding through Minot State University’s Small Grants for Faculty Research & Creative Projects (SGFRCP) program. The title of this grant program has been updated to include and encourage both research and creative project proposals. Each grant application is reviewed by members of the MSU Faculty Research Committee. Committee members use a scoring rubric to rank the applications and use these rankings in making final funding decisions.
