Posted by Jenna Ray on Tuesday, Jun. 18, 2013


Eight University of Minnesota, Morris faculty members received awards in the spring grant round of the University of Minnesota Grant-in-Aid of Research, Artistry and Scholarship Program. Administered through the Office of the Vice President for Research, Grant-in-Aid Program (GIA) funds are awarded in the belief that the quality of faculty research and artistic endeavors is a major determinant of the overall vitality of the institution. The grants are not meant to provide sole support for research activities rather, they are intended to act as seed money for developing projects.
