I am pleased to announce the second round of the DEI Innovation Grant focused on enhancing diversity, equity, and inclusion on campus.
The Diversity Innovation Fund is designed to reward the multiple ideas and innovations that people — including all faculty, staff, and students — across U-M have either implemented already and wish to grow, or are seeking seed funding for a long-range, transformative change project.
A description of the grant fund is included in the application. Applications are due March 30, 2018. Funds will be available immediately following review and approval of applications and must be expended by June 30, 2019.
Anticipated average grant size will be between $2,000 – $5,000. The DEI Innovation Grant application may be found here.
I look forward to reading the ideas that emerge.
