Grants, Fellowships & Research Funding

This site is designed to help CLA faculty obtain funding for research and scholarship and develop effective proposals. Grants consultants are available to assist faculty in identifying prospective internal and external grant opportunities, develop proposals, and submit applications. If you would like assistance, contact a grant consultant.


Sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Research, the Grant-in-Aid program promotes the research, scholarly and artistic activities of U of M faculty. Deadline to apply: Feb. 1, 2016. Learn more


If you are planning to submit an application, we urge you to view the 2013 GIA panel discussion with past and present members of the review committee for valuable insights into what makes a successful application:
