Faculty Research Grants
The purpose of a Faculty Research Grant (FRG) at Minnesota State University, Mankato is to encourage excellence in research, scholarship, and creative activities among Minnesota State Mankato faculty. These seed grants support faculty initiatives in all disciplines including basic, applied, and pedagogical research as well as creative projects. New researchers are especially encouraged to apply. It is expected that the results of the FRG will be used by grantees to explore external funding opportunities to continue their work. Evidence of a grant or contract submission for external funding will be required before the applicant can submit a follow-up FRG
Faculty members are required to describe plans for pursuing and securing external funding using their FRG-funded research or creative projects and must demonstrate substantial progress towards this plan upon submission of their FRG Final Report.
Applicants are encouraged to contact the appropriate College representative for guidance on FRG proposal development (see the "Faculty Research Committee" table below).
2019 - 2020 FRG Application Deadlines:
- Fall Semester: TBD
- Spring Semester: Tuesday, March 10, 2020 - 4:30 pm
