UMN Institute on the Environment Mini Grants

IonE Mini Grants are intended to spur new collaborative efforts by providing small amounts of funding ($3K max), administrative and logistical support, and space (for meetings, small conferences, new courses, reading groups, etc.) to interdisciplinary groups of faculty, staff and students from across the University system. The overarching goal of the program is to encourage risk taking, collaboration and experimentation across disciplines, units or campuses at the University of Minnesota. 

Mini Grants are an opportunity for interdisciplinary teams of faculty, staff, students and postdocs, from any campus of the University to engage with IonE. 

While students can submit proposals, all teams must be led or coordinated by a faculty or staff member who is eligible to be a principal investigator at the U of M. 

Teams are encouraged to work with partners beyond the University, although funds must stay at the University (except for travel expenses). 

Proposals are due Sunday, October 4; more information and proposal instructions.
