Through the MiniGrant Program, students can apply for funds to cover books, supplies, equipment, travel, workshops, etc. ($300 for individuals or $600 for groups) connected to a research or creative project.
The applicant must be an MCLA student who has made or will be making a significant intellectual contribution to the proposed activity. Both individual and group applications are accepted. Groups are two or more students working together on the same project. These grants are competitive in nature; submission does not guarantee funding.
