Small Grants for Faculty Research

Each year, faculty from a wide range of disciplines apply for funding through Minot State University’s Small Grants program. 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.
