IonE Mini Grants
IonE Mini Grants help spur new collaborations by providing small amounts of funding (from $500 to $3,000, with average grants of $1,500), administrative support (including organizing and staffing meetings) and space (for meetings, small conferences, new courses, reading groups, etc.) to interdisciplinary groups of faculty, staff and students from across the University of Minnesota system. The grants are meant to encourage collaboration across disciplines, units and campuses.
