Those new or returning to grantsmanship are encouraged to join all the sessions consecutively; however, participants are not required to attend all sessions.

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.
